This year Fred Beans Family of Dealerships donated $50,000 through the Educational Tax Improvement Credit program to the CB Cares Educational Foundation. The CB Cares foundation provides programs, initiatives, and grants to benefit and strengthen the Central Bucks community.
The programs include the Boomerang Youth Recognition Award, which honors students in the Central Bucks School District (CBSD) who exemplify a featured monthly Developmental Asset. Since 2003, more than 22,000 students have been nominated for this district-wide program.
The Backpack Newsflash, a monthly newsletter reaching 38,000 families in total, is distributed to CBSD students, staff, and families and is filled with information about programs, news, and resources.
The Youth to Community (Y2C) Arts Program showcases the talents (musical, artistic, culinary, dramatic, or poetic) of our CB middle and high school students by offering opportunities for them to demonstrate their dedication to the arts and perform with local businesses, organizations, and community events.
The five-part Parent Positive Speaker Series is committed to educating the community about current parenting issues and trends. These events are designed to bring expert speakers to provide local families with resources and solutions for parenting in the 21st century.
Innovative Learning Grants support inventive classroom projects that enrich the learning experience and curriculum and will directly benefit the students of CBSD. As much as $1,000 is awarded to individuals or teams of educators, staff members, and/or administrators. To date, more than $95,000 has been awarded.
The Fred Beans Organization is proud to support these local community initiatives that encourage and educate students.
