Basic Assistance for Students in the Community


BASIC (Basic Assistance to Students In the Community) is a charitable 501(c)3 organization committed to empowering youth and adults in the Borrego Springs community to pursue educational opportunities and achievement by providing grants, scholarships and programs that will help these students reach their potential and realize their dreams. Over the past 19 years, BASIC has made 278 awards totaling over $322,000 in scholarships and grants to Borrego youth and adults. In 2015, BASIC launched two new initiatives: (1) BASIC is the local sponsor for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, bringing age-appropriate books to children under the age of 5 (2) BASIC supports an in-the-classroom math aide for the middle school. In the summer of 2016, BASIC launched another initiative: The Second, Third and Fourth Grade Summer Reading Academy
