Class of '68 Donates to BCS Foundation

BNHS Class of '68 Gives Back to BCSD
Posted on 11/09/2018
On Thursday, Nov. 8 the Binghamton North High School Class of '68 presented a check for $5,600 to the Binghamton City School Foundation.
The group, which recently celebrated its 50th reunion, decided to raise funds on behalf of the foundation, which supports grants to district teachers for innovative classroom programs. Members of the class of '68 have been raising funds since January of this year, through an online silent-auction, 50-50 raffles and personal donations.

"We rely upon donations to support the Foundation mission," said Board Chair Kim Myers. "This is the first such donation we've received from a graduating class. We can't thank the BNHS Class of '68 sufficiently. Their gift will benefit students across the district."

The Binghamton City Schools Foundation was established in 2008 to enhance the educational experience of students in the Binghamton City Schools by providing additional resources to support the curriculum. The Foundation awards grants to school district staff members who submit proposals for special projects or activities that fall beyond the scope of the district's operating budget. Since inception, the Foundation has awarded over $151,000 to fund unique and innovative projects. 100 percent of the Foundation's funding comes from donations.
