|BEF Supports PIE:
Partners in Education!
|In our valley, in order to meet the most basic educational needs of our children, special
programs, such as music, art and outdoor education, may not receive adequate funding.
The Basalt Education Foundation helps to change that.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to giving all of Basalt's children the
opportunity to grow and explore areas of education that go beyond reading and writing and
into music, art and beyond.
In the past five years, Basalt Education Foundation has contributed over $320,000 to our
Basalt public schools.
All proceeds raised from the annual Taste of Basalt benefit numerous programs in our Basalt
public schools. Such programs include art, music, technology, outdoor education,
books/resources, professional training and much more.
As budget cuts for education continue to come down from the Colorado Legislature, valley
residents know that community fundraising can make a big difference.
Please help us make the future beautiful for ALL of Basalt’s school children.

|BEF Helps ACES Expand in Basalt
BEF is proud to support the Aspen Center for
Environmental Studies (ACES) in bringing
full-time environmental science programming to
Basalt Elementary School. BEF is one of several
organization offering monetary support to ACES
on behalf of BES. The expanded program, which
began this school year, allows students in
kindergarten through fourth grades to experience
environmental science as a regular class in their
weekly specials rotation. The program will also
take students on several field trips a year to
ACES' Rock Bottom Ranch.
