YOUR LEGACY. OUR FUTURE.
GET TO KNOW US.
The Educational Foundation of Birchwood began in 2001 when a small group of concerned Birchwood citizens witnessed decreasing state school funding and wanted to preserve educational opportunities for Birchwood students. Since that time, our board has evolved into this unique, enthusiastic family of diverse personalities and talents--each passionate about securing a great education for Birchwood area kids.
Some of our trustees are Birchwood alumni. Some have had children or grandchildren enrolled here. Some own vacation property in the area and have no other connection to the school but were so inspired by our foundation’s work that they wanted to join us on the board! We have a teacher representative and include one or two senior students to be the voice of the student body.
The Educational Foundation of Birchwood was established to strengthen community participation in our school and provide financial support, today and in the future, for innovative educational programs and creative projects that inspire both teachers and students to achieve educational excellence.
THE MISSION IN ACTION.
Every fall, staff and students of Birchwood School are encouraged to submit grant requests to the Educational Foundation for innovative programs, projects and experiences that are not able to be funded by the school district. Through fundraisers, grants and donations, we have been able to secure the funds necessary to grant most worthy requests. With responsible planning and your support, we will be able to ensure that grant funding will continue to be secure.
"Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today."
