• Dear Parents,


    Being a part of Franklin Magnet school brings unique experiences to your entire family that are far above and beyond the norm in public education. Most importantly, you chose to have your child learn in a second language.


    That’s why the Benjamin Franklin Elementary Foundation (BFEF) funds 100% of the costs of our Internship program, which provides in-classroom support by native language speaking interns and teaching assistants. Teachers say this support is absolutely crucial to their success. BFEF is a grassroots, non-profit foundation run by dedicated volunteer parents.


    Please help us continue the amazing programs that our children and teachers depend on. We encourage participation from every family. Any amount will be appreciated!


    • $10 per month donors will get a cool 2019 BFEF tote bag
    • NEW! $25 per month donors will be invited to join a breakfast with Principal Kully
    • $50 per month donors will get the tote bag AND an invitation to a Party with the Teachers and Interns

    BFEF is funded by parent contributions, which also pay for Gardening, Music, Ceramics, Robotics, Science Fair, Film Festival and more. We also applied for and are managing the Greening Grant that is making our school so much more beautiful!


    All of these enrichment programs are NOT paid for by the school district, yet are essential to a well-rounded education for our children.

    100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to the programs that help our children soar! Please remember to request corporate matching funds if they’re offered by your company.


    If you prefer to donate by check, please fill out the BFEF Gift Form and include with your gift in a sealed envelope addressed to "BFEF - ANNUAL FUNDS DRIVE" at the front office.
