With a heavy heart, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Belton Educational Foundation Gala. Keeping our wonderful donors, friends, staff, and our community in mind, we’ve been monitoring developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts. It was with much care and concern about the well-being of all that we have come to this decision.

We will miss seeing and celebrating with our loyal supporters at the 2020 Gala, but we kindly and urgently ask for your support.

Thanks to your incredible support, last year our 2019 Gala raised over $70,000 in revenue that we’ve relied upon for student scholarships and leadership programs, teacher grants for enhancing learning, mental health support and nutrition initiatives for children. With the decision to cancel our Gala in 2020 comes the challenging impact--facing significant revenue loss for our programs that support the Belton School District.

As a previous Gala participant, your contributions may have included purchases for event tickets ($75), a table for you and your friends ($750), drinks, silent/live auction items, raffle tickets and/or fund-a-need support for a specific program. Please consider supporting our efforts by making a donation equal to the dollars you would spend at the event or by making a donation associated with program needs below.

With your help, we believe that we can lessen the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our mission. Seeing how the pandemic has impacted families in our community and with decreases in school funding, we know that the need for the Foundation’s support will be greater than before. We are prepared to make some hard decisions about which programs we can support and at what levels, but if you will help, we can provide support in all areas of identified need.

Though our gala (and other fundraising events) will not occur this year, Belton School District students still need your support. If you have questions or want to speak with us regarding confirming your support, contact Sonja or Renee at 816-348-1150 or at sabdelgawad@bsd124.org.
