BSF Gala Video 2020
Each year, BSF raises nearly $1 million for our public schools. These dollars fund initiatives that our schools wouldn’t otherwise have such as STEM Lab, support programs for students who need an academic boost, classroom grants, and training that keeps our teachers excited and engaged.
Our district relies on BSF funding to pay for innovative programs, recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers, and additional academic support for students.
The Bainbridge Schools Foundation is announcing the resignation of its Executive Director, Allyson Brown. Allyson has been with BSF since 2018 and helped deepen the relationship between the island’s public schools and the community. Through her tenure, BSF worked to create a clear vision of how the community invests in education for every student, every day. “We are thankful for Allyson’s service to BSF and the work she has done for our schools. Under Allyson’s leadership, BSF provided more than $1.25 Million in funding for our schools,” stated BSF Board President Anna Steen.
As changes in public education shift in the wake of recent economic and health situations, BSF pledges to continue to support students, staff, and teachers on their growing needs. We want to thank Allyson for her work and support of our schools. If you are interested in joining the BSF team, please see our job description.
