Fundraising At BES

With its superb staff, dedicated administration, and supportive community, Brownsville Elementary is a very special school. The Brownsville PTO is proud to support our school by raising funds each year, which are necessary to provide unique, high-quality educational experiences for our children.

Community Sponsors

Our community sponsors support our school by donating to our PTO at different sponsorship levels:
• BEE-Lievers – $1,000+
• Backers – $500-$999
• Honey Bees – $250-$499
We hope that you will visit these local businesses and thank them for being a Brownsville Sponsor! If your business would like to learn more about the benefits of being a Brownsville Community Sponsor please contact us.

Last year, the Brownsville PTO launched the first FUNd Drive for the Hive. Our goal was to save our hardworking families time and energy and ensure that 100% of donations went directly to our children, teachers, and wonderful school. No more coupon books or wrapping paper sales, no more requests throughout the year. It was a test, and our Brownsville community passed with flying colors! Please be part of this campaign by making a gift at the PayPal link on the FUNd Drive page or by returning the form that will be sent home on Monday, September 11.

100% of the contributions from our FUNd Drive are gifted back into our school. The brevity of the fund drive is necessary for budget and planning purposes and, with its success, will mean you won’t be inundated with fundraising requests throughout the year. When you give, please give freely knowing that fundraising is crucial in maintaining and improving the high quality education and community that is found at Brownsville Elementary School. Please know that donations in any amount are appreciated and tax-deductible.

The FUNd Drive for the Hive will run through Friday, October 6.

Emerging Needs

This fund is created by proceeds from Spiritwares and Yearbook sales. There is no obligation for families to purchase these items but they can do so knowing that the money will contribute to assisting our guidance department with private emerging needs, and interim nutritional assistance, additional vouchers for books at the Scholastic Book fair, and has even assisted our DI Teams that went on to the global competition.

Spiritwares:

Brownsville apparel and goods are sold at specific times in the year. Our online store is open! Shop here from August 28-Sept 13.

Yearbook:

Thanks for purchasing your child’s yearbook this year.
