Our Focus & Priorities

Supporting our Community

  

The goal is to help over 600 students with activities and education in our community. Our students deserve a chance to learn, grow and become actively engaged community members. More importantly, they are given the chance to develop confidence, to feel wanted and to develop dreams for their future, dreams that have included becoming engineers, accountants, doctors and politicians. 


Our goal for 2020 is to help raise $45,000 for Bandon students. Thanks to generous sponsors, we are well on our way to reaching our goal, but we still need help. Will you help us meet our goal to provide these wonderful boys and girls with worthwhile educational activities? Your donation will have a dramatic impact on the lives of our young people. 


  

CURRENT PRIORITIES:

2019 Accomplishments

The Bandon Educational Foundation awarded over $15,000 in vocational and academic scholarships in 2019! We have also purchased musical instruments for the district's music program, provided anti-drug education to the elementary school, and are currently seeking opportunities to help in 2020.


  TESTIMONIALS:

"I have been very grateful for this scholarship and it has helped me in many ways this year. I used this scholarship to pay for all of my books and many other college/living expenses. This scholarship reduced my overall stress level about money. It allows me to focus on my studies and not worry so much about finances.”

“Four years ago I would have never seen myself as the college bound student. Your scholarship not only helped me get to school, but encouraged me to follow through with my education.”
