What Does Bellevue Schools Foundation Do?
The Bellevue Schools Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises private funds to support our schools. Since our inception, we have raised over $30M for our school district. Public funding in the United States is not enough to guarantee that our students receive a top-notch education. The Bellevue Schools Foundation helps make up the difference by asking parents, local businesses, and community members to support our schools.
In our Elementary schools, the funding supports computer science programming, books for our kindergarten libraries, and training for our teachers. In addition, teachers can apply to the Foundation for grants to help their individual classrooms.
In Middle and High School, the funding supports computer science programming, training for our teachers, classroom mentors, college and career readiness programming, and leadership training for underrepresented students.
This year, the Foundation will be launching a 5-year campaign to raise funds for a program to help students with mental health issues(Points Living, p42), including stress, anxiety, and depression. In addition, teachers can apply to the Foundation for grants to help their individual classrooms.
The Bellevue Schools Foundation drives resources to help our students receive the best possible educational outcomes.
