Bulloch County Foundation for Public School Education

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:

Innovation Grants
Since 2006, the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education (Foundation) has funded more than 200 innovative teacher grants totaling nearly $250,000 to fund learning experiences for Bulloch County children.

Charitable Giving
The Foundation provides a way for individuals, businesses, industries and civic organizations to invest in local education programs that benefit public, charter, private and home-schooled students. In addition, the Foundation’s two major fundraising campaigns are the Statesboro 5K Turkey Trot and Bulloch County Schools’ Jeans Fridays, which is an employee payroll deduction option.

College Scholarships
The Foundation funds Bulloch County School’s annual participation in the REACH Georgia Scholarship Program with a $7,500 annual contribution. As a result, five graduating REACH scholars each receive a $20K - $30K scholarship for college in addition to the HOPE scholarship.   

 STAR Student / STAR Teacher
The Foundation is the local underwriting sponsor for the Professional Association of GA Educator’s STAR program. The Foundation’s financial support makes this program possible locally for Bulloch County’s public, private and charter schools.

Teacher of the Year Program
The Foundation is one of the main corporate sponsors for Bulloch County Schools’ Teacher of the Year program.  The Foundation annually provides a $1,000 grant to the district’s teacher of the year.
