Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Broadalbin Perth Education Foundation?

The Broadalbin Perth Education Foundation was formed in early 2012 with a mission to promote, sponsor and expand educational opportunities by building broad community support for public education.  The Foundation is directed by a volunteer group of community members.  Applications for funding are encouraged from the entire community and will be evaluated on their own merits by the Board of Directors.  Funding will be considered for group projects (not for individual scholarships).

Why does the Broadalbin Perth Community need an Education Foundation?

While education budgets are becoming tighter, the Foundation provides a mechanism to enhance and support creative educational opportunities outside the traditional framework of the public education system.

How can I support the Foundation?

You can make a donation, become involved with the Foundation by attending our meetings and voicing your ideas, and you can volunteer at various fundraising events as you have time.  Please contact us through our website or at 518 620-6207 for more information.

Are my donations tax deductible?

Yes!  The Broadalbin Perth Education Foundation is recognized as a 501(c)3 (not-for-profit organization), therefore all donations to the Foundation will be considered charitable contributions on your federal income tax return, subject to various limitations under the federal tax laws.
