why | what | how

Travel through any town in the country and you will pass by schools. Wherever they are and however they look, our minds easily register what they are. Not so easily registered is the funding structure that keeps them standing and serving students. There is a common assumption that the government takes care of all school funding. 

Even on Bainbridge, where parental engagement is strong, there is that same assumption by many that levies and state funding satisfy our district’s budget. Bainbridge Schools Foundation’s (BSF) core mission is to bridge the gap between government funding and the dollars needed for pivotal programs to fully operate. If these programs are not funded, many students are left behind.

We want to share with you some of the crucial programs targeted in BSF’s $900,000 funding goal:


The need:  $60,000 for academic intervention specialists at the high school

The need:  $240,000 for reading specialists and academic support clubs

The need:  $140,000 for K-4 STEM

The need:  $180,000 for teacher support


Over nearly two years of an unpredictable and challenging education environment, these programs have demonstrated their central role in the schools.


Help us sustain this work by contributing to Bainbridge Schools Foundation today.


Students, teachers, and our entire community will thank you.
