2020 Annual Report


President's Message


Dear Brown Deer Community,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Education Foundation of Brown Deer, I am pleased to present our sixth Annual Report.  We launched the Foundation in 2014 as a 501(c)(3) charity organization.

Our mission is to enhance educational opportunities for students, families and staff of the School District of Brown Deer.

We are independent of, but work closely with the School District, to accelerate student learning, support the professional growth of our teachers and staff, facilitate community/school partnerships, and continue a scholarship program for BDHS graduates.

The funds we raise stay here in Brown Deer and directly benefit our children.  Over 90% of our expenses were used to fund programs in the areas of early childhood literacy and career exploration and career readiness, provide grants to teachers and staff, and award college scholarships. It is our goal in the upcoming year and beyond to continue this commitment to our children.  Together we truly can make a difference!

Thank you for making our sixth year a very successful one.  We are grateful for your continued support.

Barb Fleming, Board President
