BASEF is a registered charity and is one hundred percent volunteer-run, but we need almost $90,000 each year to operate the fair.
BASEF relies entirely on the generosity of its corporate, educational, organizational and individual sponsors. When you make a donation, all of the money benefits the student participants. Most of your donation goes directly to the students in the form of participation awards and events, prize money, medals, and trips advancing their projects and them to the national and international science fairs. The balance of the funds are used for the site and judging costs.
For a concise break down see our annual report (latest version available in November or December after financial review). We look forward to your contribution as an investment in today’s youth, helping students become more engaged and involved with science, technology, and engineering. All direct donations of $10 or more will receive an official receipt for income tax purposes. Thank you for your support of BASEF!
BASEF’s Charitable Registration number is BN 11895 1565 RR0001
