Bainbridge Schools Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization that exists to bridge the substantial education funding gap that exists despite government funding and PTO support.

 

BSF works in close partnership with the Bainbridge Island School District to ensure its funding reaches 100% of BISD students, kindergarten through 12th grade. Our outstanding public schools consistently rank among the top in the state despite receiving significantly less funding per pupil than Mercer Island, Seattle, North Kitsap, and Bremerton. BSF bridges this gap at the elementary, middle, and high school levels district wide.

BSF pledges its funds to the Bainbridge Island School District to bridge critical gaps in state and federal funding, support students and educators, and seed innovative initiatives that would otherwise go unexplored.

 

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

Help us bridge the gap!
