HOW IT WORKS

Helping make Bearden

the best it can be

Each semester, the Foundation’s Gift Committee meets to evaluate the variety of requests for financial assistance made by teachers, administrators and other stakeholders at Bearden High School. Factors in committee decisions include the number of students and teachers benefitted by the request, additional sources of possible funding, measurable educational objectives, and financial documentation. 

 

The deadline for Applications for Fall Gift Requests is the end of August. The deadline for Applications for Spring Gift Requests is the end of January.
