The mission of the Butte Education Foundation (BEF) is to facilitate the funding of innovative educational programs and to advance community support for excellence through endowments, scholarships, grants, and specialized programs.  The foundation will provide financial resources for students and educators in the district and county schools. 

Our guiding vision is that EVERY CHILD has the right to an excellent education and that an investment in the Butte Public Schools is an investment in the Butte community.
