From our founder
BEAF was originally created to purchase property that was leased by the Bolivar R-1 School District on behalf of the Exceptional Cooperative of the Ozarks. While the purpose of the Foundation has always been to assist the Bolivar R-1 School District, its teacher, its students and its graduates who are pursuing higher educational opportunities, the scope of services provided by the Foundation has greatly expanded over the years. Today, its primary focus is to provide scholarships through funds designated by donors to assist Bolivar School graduates with the costs of attending a college, university, vocation or trade school; and a growing program also provides scholarships from unrestricted funds to assist needy students of Bolivar High School who wish to dually enroll in both high school and a local cooperating college or university. BEAF currently administers over $1,750,000 in restricted scholarship funds, and over $200,000 in unrestricted funds that are available in the discretion of the Board to assist the district and its teachers to enhance the learning tools available to the students of the District, and from which dual enrollment scholarships are allocated.
