Volunteer Wanted: Treasurer for the B-CC High School Educational Foundation

The B-CC High School Educational Foundation is looking for a new Treasurer.  The Foundation is an all-volunteer non-profit group that raises money to fund programs targeting academic excellence at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School.

The Treasurer is responsible for preparing and maintaining the Foundation’s financial statements and its books and records, accounting for donations and paying bills, and also serves as the liaison to the school administrators to process and track payments and disbursements for programs funded by the Foundation. The Treasurer also works with the Foundation’s outside accounting firm to provide the information needed for the preparation of the annual tax filings and financial review.  The Foundation Board meets five times a year during the school year (Sept – May), and the Treasurer would attend each meeting to update the Board on the Foundation’s current financial status.

The Treasurer also serves on the Board’s Executive Committee, which meets periodically and in advance of each Board meeting.  Ideal candidates would have a CPA, be familiar with financial software applications, and have kids(s) currently attending B-CC (or who will attend B-CC or who previously attended B-CC), but this is not a requirement.  The current Treasurer is retiring, and plans to stay on the Board for another year to ensure a smooth transition.

The Foundation has a 20-year history of funding programs to help each and every B-CC student reach her/his fullest academic potential and succeed in college, and we hope you will join our cause.  Interested candidates should contact Bruce Rosenblum, Secretary of the Foundation, at BRosenblum@vedderprice.com or (202) 312 -3379.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation was established in 1995 during a time of declining enrollment and deteriorating facilities at B-CC High School. 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:
