Thank You to our Business Partners for helping
to make these programs possible!
A strong foundation of financial literacy provides support for a variety of lifelong goals such as saving for retirement, using debt responsibly, and running a business.
The goal of the BCE Endowment Fund is to be a permanent, self-sustaining fund. The principal is invested and all or part of the earnings are used to help support the costs of Burlingame School District programs and goals in a given year.
THE ENDOWMENT: Investing for the Future
To provide a source of permanent financial stability to BCE’s annual grant to the Burlingame School District that will meet the needs of future generations of public school students for years to come.
Our great public schools are a key reason that Burlingame is such a desirable place to live. Our schools contribute to strong property values, local businesses, and a vibrant community.
