The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District


About The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District

Created to strengthen, enhance and enrich the educational experiences for the students of the Bethlehem Area School District, The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District was established in 1999. The Foundation for the BASD is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of members of the community working in concert with, but independent of, the Bethlehem Area School District. The Foundation’s focus has been helping educators deliver innovative teaching to students inside and outside the classroom. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Foundation raises funds through tax-deductible contributions to fund programs, projects and initiatives which support our mission.
