howt to donate.jpg

The Bearden High School Foundation helps students and staff make BHS a place of academic, athletic and artistic excellence. The “Invest in BHS” campaign asks all Bearden families who can to make a donation to the Foundation and help provide school materials, training, teaching tools, and opportunities in and out of the classroom. 


This school year is unlike any other and the needs of our students and teachers are as great as ever. Some needs are underfunded, some are not funded at all. The Foundation is a non-profit 501©(3) organization. Every donation is tax-deductible and every dollar makes a difference.


Thank You for your support!

"Earlier this year, the BHS choir was gifted a Steinway baby grand piano. While we were delighted to receive the instrument, we worried about protecting it and moving it safely. The Foundation provided funds needed to purchase a dolly, cover, and keyboard lock so that students will be able to utilize this piano for years to come."

 - Steven Brown, Choir Director, Bearden High School

“The Foundation has supplemented my program with curriculum upgrades, new online software, and most recently, with better-designed chairs for coding class students sitting for long stretches in front of their computers. The extra financial support has made a huge impact on the courses I’ve taught over the years.”

-Amy Shipley, Information Technology Instructor, Bearden High School


“The high resolution and bright light of our new PowerLite projector ensures students around the room can easily see exponents and graphs in Algebra, and command line prompts and scripting details in Cybersecurity and Computer Science. It improves student learning and wouldn't have been possible without the support of the Foundation.”

– Dr. Tim Cathcart, Mathematics Dept., Bearden High School
