Description: The Blue Lake Education Foundation's mission is to help support critical education programs for the children attending Blue Lake Elementary, including sports, music, languages and arts. These programs, although not mandated by the state, are essential to a well-rounded education for our children. Due to the ongoing budget crisis facing our small community school, these programs are no longer paid for through the general fund, and we are in jeopardy of losing them altogether. To fight these cuts, Blue Lake Education Foundation (BLEF), was founded by concerned parents and family members. The BLEF goal, through ongoing fundraising events and donations, is to reach $150K and maintain this minimum amount so that these essential programs can be sustained for years to come to help enrich our children's lives. All donations and/or bequests to this fund will help support BLEF in this endeavor.
