Your Donation Supports all Burlingame Public Schools

The Burlingame Community Education Foundation relies on generous support from parents, businesses and community members to maintain its outstanding schools. Donations to BCE provide our schools with funding for enhancing the educational experience for every child in Burlingame. 

 

Our suggested donation amount is $1,700 per student, but every dollar makes a difference. Consider joining our Scholars Circle by making a donation of $3,500 or more.

Donate from a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. They allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.
