PHILADELPHIA – To ensure that every school in the greater Philadelphia and South Jersey regions has an opportunity to submit a project entry for the Beneficial Foundation School Challenge, Beneficial Bank has extended the submission deadline to December 2. The Beneficial Foundation School Challenge program will award multiple $5,000, $1,000 and $500 grants, for a total of $13,000 in grant prizes.
This program gives schools and students within Beneficial’s footprint the opportunity to submit their proposals for unique project ideas to enhance the learning experience in their schools and compete for grant prizes. Schools and students can submit their project ideas in one of three different subject areas- Financial Literacy/Math, Science/History or Language Arts/Reading.
The Beneficial Foundation School Challenge winners will be selected through an online, public voting contest that will take place in the spring of 2012.
The complete Beneficial Foundation School Challenge entry rules and application can be found at https://www.thebeneficial.com/school-challenge.asp. Teachers or school administrators with questions about the program should direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- A $50 gift enables us to cover a news event in a local parish, school or Catholic institution.
- A $20 gift lets us obtain solid faith formation resources that can deepen your spirituality and knowledge of the faith.
- A small, automated monthly donation means you can support us continually and easily.
Please join in the church's vital mission of communications by offering a gift in whatever amount that you can -- a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more, or a monthly donation. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
