Supporting Ball-Chatham schools
About the Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation

Educational “extras” make a critical difference between a very good school district and a great one. Ball-Chatham Community Unit School District #5 is a great school system with solid funding mechanisms. Because of this, our schools don’t qualify for program funding that covers the many extras our students need. Thus the formation of the Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation (BCEF) in 2001.

The BCEF is a separate entity from the school district. It is a non-profit, autonomous, tax-exempt, 501 (C) 3 organization directed by a board of trustees. Contributions can only be used within the Ball-Chatham School District. The trustees are committed to raising and distributing funds for the educational extras that makes our school system great.

Our Mission
The mission of the Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation is to raise and distribute funds for opportunities that enrich the educational experience and enhance the development, creativity and innovative potential of our students and staff.


Goals
The foundation will achieve its mission by channeling talents and funds into projects which:

  • Bring new technology into our classrooms
  • Enhance staff development and creativity
  • Encourage innovative programmatic initiatives
  • Work with and support other groups and/or individuals interested in contributing to the success of the Ball-Chatham Community Unit School District #5 educational mission.

To learn more about the BCEF, please contact Julie Nortell-Briggs, Executive Director, at 217.483.2416 or BCEFDir@bcsd5.org.
