Basalt Education Foundation
Basalt Education Foundation raises funds to enhance education in the Basalt public schools. Through the annual Taste of Basalt and the Roaring Fork Charity Classic golf tournament fundraisers, as well as generous corporate and community donations, BEF works directly with teachers and administrators to help the local elementary, middle and high schools deliver innovative, creative programming and experiences for every student. BEF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible per IRS guidelines. Our 18-member, all-volunteer board includes school parents, business leaders and Basalt town staff.
