Ways to Give

Big or small, every dollar donated to the BPS Foundation helps spark innovation and energizes the learning experience for students and educators in Bellevue. We now have even more opportunities to make a lasting impact.

Memorial Scholarships

The BPS Foundation currently manages 23 memorial scholarships funded by individuals, families and alumni classes. These tribute scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors based on criteria determined by the donor.


The BPS Foundation partnered with Thrivent in 2020 to establish an endowment fund to plan for long-term, strategic giving to the District. Through an initial financial investment, and on-going donations, the BPS Foundation endowment provides a stable alternative source of funding.

Legacy Giving

When you want to affect significant improvement and make a lasting impact, consider making the BPS Foundation a part of your legacy giving and estate planning. Contact your personal financial advisor to learn more about the various opportunities for legacy giving.

Special Projects

Special projects provide a unique opportunity for donors to make specific contributions based on individual areas of interest or strategic District needs. Alumni classes, individuals and businesses can donate funds to help with renovations and building improvements, classroom and program expansions or for direct student support items.
