For Donors

Every year, BEF receives hundreds of donations from community members who wish to make a difference in education for both the faculty and students of Barrington Public Schools. Barrington Education Foundation provides donors with an excellent opportunity to invest in both the current and future learning experience of our students.

For Business Partners

Barrington Education Foundation is proud of the many local and regional businesses that are passionate about the quality of education provided through Barrington Public Schools. An investment in BEF is a clear statement to faculty, parents, students and community members alike of the commitment Barrington businesses make year-in and year-out to educational enrichment. It is through the generous donations delivered by the business sector that BEF is able to make such far-reaching impact in our schools.
