The BCHSE Foundation

Mission Statement

 

The Brookland-Cayce High School Education Foundation (BCHSE Foundation) was established in 1997 as a non-profit, tax exempt organization to raise funds and promote educational programs for Brookland-Cayce High School through donations of goods, services and money from corporations, business groups, foundations, and individuals.

 

The BCHSE Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors, composed of educational, corporate, civic, alumni, and parent leaders.  The board’s responsibilities are to coordinate the collection of donor funds from multiple sources, to insure the safekeeping and accurate accounting for these funds, and to approve the fair and proper disbursement of the funds.

 

Further, the mission of the BCHSE Foundation shall be to continue to build on Brookland-Cayce High School’s rich heritage of academic excellence.  This community-based effort will provide supplemental funding for educational programs, equipment, and/or projects which may be otherwise unbudgeted.
