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.
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.
Below are last year’s sponsors. Stay tuned for an updated list of 2018-19 Sponsors!
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.
Get ready for an all new FUNd Drive this year!
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, interim nutritional assistance, additional vouchers for books at the Scholastic Book fair, etc.

Each Box Top is worth 10 cents, and the money raised directly benefits your child’s education at Brownsville. Simply collect Box Tops in a plastic zip baggie, write your child’s teacher’s name on the baggie, and send into school. Every month the class with the most box tops will win a prize! (Please note – we cannot turn in expired Box Tops.)
