Belmont Savings Announces $9,000 Donation to the Foundation for Belmont Education’s Innovative Teaching Initiative

Posted on February 4th, 2014 at 1:55 PM

BELMONT - Belmont Savings Bank and the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation jointly donated $9,000 to the Foundation for Belmont Education (FBE). These funds will specifically support the FBE’s Innovative Teaching Initiative and enable Belmont’s educators to utilize new teaching techniques as well as iPad technology. The Innovative Teaching Initiative will improve student engagement and help develop 21st century skills such as creative problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, data gathering and analysis and technological competency.

 On Tuesday, January 28th, a check presentation was held at the FBE’s Board of Directors meeting. Participants at the event included: Hal Tovin, Chief Operating Officer of Belmont Savings Bank, Jamie Shea, President of the Foundation for Belmont Education, Laurie Graham, School Committee Chairwoman, Janice Darias, Assistant Superintendent of Belmont Public Schools and Dr. Thomas Kingston, Interim Superintendent of Belmont Public Schools.

 The $4,000 check from Belmont Savings Bank is a contribution made directly as a result of the many Belmont Education Reward Checking accounts opened at Belmont Savings in 2013. For each new checking account, the FBE gets $50 and the account holder gets $50.

 The $5,000 check from the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation is a grant contribution awarded to the FBE.

Since its inception in 1993, the Foundation for Belmont Education has granted over $2.6 million to the Belmont Public Schools to support 517 projects initiated and organized by administrators, teachers, and staff. The grants have been funded through donations from thousands of Belmont residents and businesses.

Belmont Savings Bank is an Investor in Education Sponsor for the Foundation for Belmont Education.
