BCE helps Burlingame School District (BSD) sustain and enhance an exceptional public education for all TK-8th grade students. Working together with parents, the school district, and community, we provide BSD with financial resources to create a rich and inspiring education for our children beyond what is possible with public funds.
BCE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation.
BCE is a volunteer-driven charitable organization incorporated in 1981. We are governed by a 14-member volunteer Board of Directors and supported by two staff members: the Director of Operations and a part-time Administrative Assistant. Parent volunteers from all six school sites comprise the Board of Directors. A member of the BSD Board of Trustees, the Superintendent, a school principal and the PTA Council President serve as liaisons, attending the quarterly public board meetings. Over 100 volunteers on the BCE Advisory Board and 100+ event volunteers plan and execute BCE’s annual fundraising campaign and events. At the end of each school year, BCE provides a grant to the Burlingame School District. The school district makes informed decisions about how the money will best serve our children’s educational needs.
