We’re thrilled that you’ve taken a moment in your busy schedule to learn about the Bismarck Public Schools Foundation. We’re committed to enhancing the educational experience of every Bismarck school student.

Your generous gift of time, talent, or treasure impacts multiple areas, including fine arts, athletics, special education, STEM, behavioral health and so many more. Your gift helps fund scholarships for graduating seniors and assists families struggling to obtain school supplies or pay for hot lunch.

Please accept my heartfelt, sincere appreciation if you’ve graciously supported us in the past. Your kindness has touched the lives of BPS students in such a positive manner.

If you haven’t donated to the Foundation, well, here’s your chance to make a difference. You can donate to a school or to a project/area that you are passionate about. If you don’t see an area you would like to support, connect with Stacey Lang, our Development Director. She would welcome the chance to visit with you.

Again, thanks for visiting us and we hope to add you to our greet supporters.
