Donors & Giving

Donor montage

An investment in public education is an investment in our community’s quality of life. There is no better foundation for a safe, healthy and prosperous community than great public education. 

Bradley County and Cleveland City Schools are committed to providing an excellent education for every K-12 student.  Substantial public funding is critical, but private dollar investments support academic innovation which is essential to delivering excellence!

Ways to Give

Your gifts to BCPEF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law and provide support for strategic classroom, school or system-wide programs and projects.
