YOU Did it!
Clickathon has ended and because of YOUR generosity, our students have much to celebrate.
363 people--including you--raised $157,000 in 48 hours.
Collectively, you donated $94,000, unlocking and exceeding our entire $63,000 matching pool. In doing so, you demonstrated the power our community has to elevate and improve education for every Bellevue School District student.
Thank you. We are grateful and humbled. Because of you, our students will get the BEST possible education including: cutting-edge computer science lessons, robotics, more staff trained to help students with anxiety and depression online, funding family Connection Centers, providing digital copies of culturally responsive books for grades 1-5, and much more.
You make our schools great. Thank you!
Make YOUR gift HERE.

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 $35M 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.
