About the Foundation

The Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education was created in 2006 by local leaders and the Bulloch County Board of Education to provide a way for the community to further invest in public education and provide local funding for innovative projects. The Foundation's current body of work includes the following:

 

Support for Innovative Teachers - Since its creation in 2006, the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education (Foundation) has funded nearly 200 innovative projects with grants totaling more than $170,000 for Bulloch County Schools’ teachers.  The Foundation provides a way for individuals, businesses, industry and civic organizations to invest in local public education.  Each year the Foundation awards $20,000 in grants to teachers for innovative academic experiences, some of which benefit all children in Bulloch County, even local charter, private and home-schooled students.

 

REACH Georgia Scholarship Program – The Foundation sponsors Bulloch County Schools’ participation in the state’s REACH Georgia Scholarship Program with a $7,500 annual contribution.  REACH Georgia is a needs-based mentoring and scholarship program designed to ensure that the state’s academically promising eighth-grade students have the academic, social and financial support needed to graduate from high school and complete college.  Since 2013, the Foundation has contributed $22,500 to the college funds of 15 Bulloch County REACH Scholars. With local and state REACH Scholarship funds, plus agreements from more than 60 local and statewide post-secondary institutions, each of our REACH Scholars have $20,000 waiting for them once they complete college.  These scholars are actively meeting strict academic, behavior and attendance requirements and meeting with an assigned mentor in order to remain scholarship eligible. 

 

Bulloch County Teacher of the Year – The Foundation annually provides a $1,000 grant to the Bulloch County Schools Teacher of the Year.

 

Fundraising Events & Campaigns – The Foundation hosts the annual Turkey Trot 5K in November and year-round giving opportunities to raise funds for grant projects.  The Foundation is supported by generous donations from businesses, educators and the public.  Please consider joining our efforts today with a tax deductible contribution.  To learn more, contact 912-212-8530.
