We hope that you will consider giving to The Blackwell Public School Foundation. We accept donations of any size and all are appreciated. Because of how we structure our investments, your gift will continue giving for as long as the Foundation lasts.
There are many ways you can contribute to the future success of Blackwell students and to support the school that helped you succeed. Here are a few ways you can help:
Become a Bell Ringer:
Since The Blackwell Public School Foundation was formed in 1988, the tradition of the Bell Ringer has been ongoing.
A Bell Ringer is an individual, business, organization, memorial, estate, or alumni class that donates $1,000.00 or more in a year to the Blackwell Public School Foundation. These donors are recognized at The Bell Ringer Dinner, which is wonderful event, annually. Each Bell Ringer receives a one-of-a-kind, numbered, hand-crafted bell symbolic of their support.
Many of our Bell Ringers support the Foundation year after year.
Alumni Classes are great supporters of the Bell Ringer program raising funds through their Classes generally at Homecoming in the fall.
Foundations & Trusts:
The Blackwell Public School Foundation is supported annually by significant contributions from The Dave Morgan Foundation and The Beatty Trust, both local charitable organizations. We sincerely appreciate this ongoing support.
Many times The Beatty Trust will assist in funding grant rounds over and above the available funds from The Blackwell Public School Foundation, thus leveraging our grant program even further.
Friends and families of Blackwell Alumni have supported the Blackwell Public School Foundation in the name of their loved one. Your funeral director can be helpful in establishing a memorial fund.
Estates & Insurance:
Wonderful gifts have been received by the Foundation from planned giving by Alumni and Friends of the Blackwell school system. Planning through wills, trusts and insurance beneficiary arrangements are ways for you to make a significant impact on Blackwell students.
Sometimes there is a special project or purpose that can be funded for the betterment of the students of the Blackwell Schools. Tax deductible giving for specific purposes may also be an option.
Make Informed Giving Decisions:
As with all legal and tax issues, we strongly recommend that you consult your tax and legal advisors to assist in making your decision.
