Bellaire Public Schools created endowment funds at the Charlevoix County Community Foundation to provide financial support of our schools for the long-term. The Community Foundation provides professional investment management and administration of the Fund, and each year the income from the Fund provides another source of funding for our students. The Fund also provides options for donors, who may want to support the schools and receive a tax deduction.
Two funds that are currently active are the BPS Greatest Educational Needs Fund and the BPS Student Scholarship Fund. Of the two, the one that impacts the greatest number of students is the BPS Greatest Educational Needs Fund. The endowment funds also presents an excellent option for donors who want to make legacy gifts.
