Community leaders formed the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Schools Foundation in 1992 as a way to provide programs to enrich the educational experiences of the district’s students. The Schools Foundation accomplishes this goal by:


  • Offering special classroom experiences not normally provided by the school board

  • Expanding recognition of student achievement through scholarships

  • Encouraging teacher creativity in the classroom with special program and enrichment grants

  • Involving the community in the support of our schools


The foundation is directed by a volunteer board of trustees made up of community members and educators. It was formed under the authority of the Brecksville-Broadview Heights City School District's Board of Education. The Foundation is incorporated under Ohio law as a non-profit organization and is a tax-exempt charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Code.
