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.

The Legacy Society consists of gifts received by the Foundation which the donors have stipulated, as a condition of the gift, that the principle of the fund is to be maintained and invested for the purpose of producing income. This income may be used to support the Foundation’s programs as specified by the donor or re-invested, adding to the principle. These gifts are often stipulated within the donor's estate plan.
