Get To Know Us

The Black Hawk EIE Fund supports educational programming outside of the boundaries of the Belmont school district budget to help subsidize state cutbacks to the local district, and give teachers and students the opportunity to explore and discover creative ways to teach and learn.

Learn About Our EIE Grants

Gifts to Excellence in Education funds are an investment in quality education for today’s students and future generations. Private resources allow for educational programming not typically funded by tax dollars.

Your gift can be a lasting and meaningful way of recognizing a special person or event in the life of your family, organization or business, or as a statement that you value education today and into the future. Donations to any EIE Fund are welcome at any time of the year. All gifts are tax deductible.

Annual grant application deadline: April 1.
