Welcome to the Belton Educational Enrichment Foundation (BEEF).
The Foundation was founded in 1992 as an independent, nonprofit corporation established by friends of BISD.
BEEF's purpose is to enhance the quality of education for all students in BISD.
BEEF is governed by an elected Board of Directors who represent various segments of the Belton community. The Board's primary purpose is to work together with the District to ensure student success. The Board oversees an endowment fund that will provide an ongoing source of funding to enhance the opportunities for students and staff of BISD.
BEEF Mission Statement

The annual BEEF Patrol was held on Dec. 2 to award $43,528.09 in innovative teaching grants and $2,500 to paraprofessionals for continuing education. An additional $5,000 was awarded on Dec. 9 to the CTE Welding program for construction of a gate for the new Ag Barn located off of FM 93. See video of the BEEF Patrol.
