Our Mission - Improving the quality of education in Bradford Public Schools
We Support Our Local Teachers and Schools!
Wondering about some of our programs in The Bradford County School System?
The BCEF hosts Scholastic Fairs which provides $5 certificates for EVERY child attending Bradford County Elementary Schools to purchase books at their scholastic fairs. We donate the first 250 Build-a-Books for the Parents’ Night and the Title One program provides the rest for each Scholastic Fair.
The BCEF hosts a silent auction in conjunction with North Florida Regional Chamber Annual Banquet. With the support of our businesses and BCEF members, we raise around $8,000 to help with school programs.
In 2010 The BCEF began to establish an Endowed Scholarship with Santa Fe College to provide Scholarships for those in our community who want to teach in Bradford County Schools.
