CHIP IN Batavia
To ensure that BPS 101 students that are facing the obstacles of poverty and/or temporary housing have the support they need to be successful in school. CHIP IN Batavia is a restricted fund within the Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence, a 501-c-3 organization. 100% of your donation is used for students--No one is paid to run this group and there are no administrative costs...it is all done by volunteers.
Each BPS 101 District School has an "in-house" point person and a CHIP IN Batavia representative assigned to them. Area church groups, Batavia Rotary, Batavia Woman's Club, Kiwanis,
and other interested groups and individuals aid the CHIP IN representative as individual needs arise at the school. The goal is for CHIP IN to support children that have been pre-qualified by the school district by providing needed snacks, school supplies, and basic necessities that enable the opportunity to thrive and learn during the school year. This is done while preserving dignity and anonymity.
