Why a Foundation for a Public High School?
Funding for public education comes from a mixture of federal, state and local taxes. Within this funding process, political influences frequently determine levels of funding that may not give priority to the community's educational expectations. As a tax deductible organization, the BBCHS Academic Foundation takes on the needs above and beyond what the local tax base can afford and what the current educational system can provide. 
How Can I Help?
  • Join the Boilermaker Club Your annual $100 tax deductible donation helps to expand academic opportunities for the students of our community high school.
  • Sponsor a Scholarship or Endowment Donors can elect to set up specific family or personal named funds.
  • Volunteer:  Extra help is always needed during fundraising and newsletter time. Call Laurie Blake, Executive Director at 815-937-3707 ext. 6003 if you would like to volunteer your time. 


How are the gifts funded?
