The Booker T. Washington Foundation for Excellence’s Fall Campaign kicks off our fundraising efforts for each new academic year.
The funds you graciously give help us fund curriculum, purchase technology, fulfill teacher grant requests, and underwrite groups such as Robotics, Speech & Debate, the Drama Department, and the Video Production Club.
The funds we receive help fund curriculum enhancements, technology purchases, teacher grant requests, and expenses for extracurriculars such as Robotics, Speech and Debate, Drama, and the Videography Club. We also purchase online learning tools and anti-plagiarism software.
The Foundation proudly offers free PSAT/SAT/ACT test preparation classes to all students. In addition, the Foundation pays AP and IB exam fees for students facing economic challenges
