What We Fund
Your BCE donations make a positive impact on every TK-8th grade student in our school district. In 2019, thanks to your generosity, BCE has granted our schools a record-breaking $2,514,000 to boost our school budget. Our grant will support high performing classrooms in three key ways this year: Academic Program Enrichment, Classroom Experience Improvements, and Teacher Professional Development Services:
This funding boosts the amount received from the State of California, local parcel taxes, and federal funds.
What You Can Do:
Unlike many states that have sufficient education funding to cover the costs of a well-rounded enriched primary education, California has one of the lowest rates of education funding per student. That’s why many cities across California have an education foundation (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation) to help increase the amount of funding per student and maintain an academic experience comparable with other top schools.
It is only with your support that we can take good public schools and make them into great public schools. Every donation is appreciated and it will make a difference to all of our students. So please consider making an annual donation every fall to BCE.
BCE supports all seven schools in the Burlingame School District – Burlingame Intermediate, Franklin Elementary, Hoover Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, McKinley Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, and Washington Elementary.
