• Education Foundation Logo

    The BCSD Education Foundation is a charitable, non-profit organization with the following mission:

    Partner with the community to provide resources that directly impact the lives of children through innovative educational programs.

    Every dollar raised goes directly back to the students in the classroom. You can support these innovative grants through the foundation's yearly, Teddy Bear Picnic, Bakersfield Luau, or golf tournament.  Additional opportunities to support students and educators at BCSD include becoming a Community Partner in Education or a donor on our Tree of Knowledge.  Please see the Foundation Events tab for more information.
