Mission

Education is the great fault line that determines who is part of the American dream. A high quality education is a lifetime gift.

To further the tradition of excellence for today’s and tomorrow’s students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, a group of parents, alumni, teachers, along with business, community, and civic leaders, formed the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that public education delivers its promise and gives all students at B-CC High School the skills they need to flourish and succeed.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation is neither an endowment nor a permanent fund. With no paid staff, it relies entirely on the generosity of its donors and the volunteer efforts of its Board of Directors. The Foundation works closely with the principal and school staff, as well as the PTSA, to identify unmet needs and raises the necessary funds from current and former B-CC families, alumni, friends, towns, and local businesses. It is a tax exempt charitable foundation with a nonprofit 501(c)(3) designation.

The Foundation took on the charge to help improve school facilities, raise academic rigor, and re-engineer B-CC for the 21st Century.

Foundation Net Revenue 1996-2016 By the summer of 2016, the Foundation has raised more than two and a half million dollars to meet that challenge and to invest in academic excellence at B-CC High School. With new programs and a newly modernized facility that was completed in February 2002, B-CC’s enrollment, reflecting community confidence in the school, has been increasing steadily ever since.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, students, businesses, and community members has made it possible for the Foundation to fund innovative academic support programs that promote high academic standards and support success for all B-CC students. In the process, the Foundation helped bring several “firsts” to B-CC High School:
