Teachers Ask.  Students Learn.  Berwyn CARES

Announcing the 2012-2013 Berwyn Challenge at Donors Choose! #990000#990000

From December 12 through December 31st, 2012 Berwyn CARES will match dollar for dollar any contribution to the Berwyn Challenge up to $250 per project or $2000 in total (whichever is less).  Only projects registered for the Challenge as of December 12, 2012 will qualify for matching contributions.

Apply for Funding


It's simple really.  You have a great idea that would help enrich your students' learning experience.  We help provide the funding.  Teachers submit your proposals to DonorsChoose.org and each December Berwyn C.A.R.E.S. grants up to $500 to the top concepts submitted by Berwyn Teachers.

Projects Supported by C.A.R.E.S.

The 2010 Challenge was a tremendous success. Thanks to generous contributions from our community and from around the United States and an additional $3500 in grants from BerwynCARES, projects were funded and thousands of students were impacted.  High school students were also impacted through the 2011 Morton Mini Challenge.
