Our Mission

Our mission is to invest financial and human resources in collective efforts to improve the educational outcomes of students in Connecticut and the vitality of their communities.

To achieve our mission, BeFoundation encourages collective action between philanthropy, public education systems, nonprofits and municipalities to build and sustain effective pathways for our young people that lead to family-supporting standards of living.

If we commit to sustaining student success through post-secondary education and beyond, and to learning together as a community, we will build creative, smart, and civically engaged places to live and work.
