The Beech Grove Education Foundation . . . preparing students to successfully meet the challenges of the future and providing support to families in the Beech Grove community.
Believing Beech Grove students should have the very best in educational opportunities, community leaders founded the Beech Grove Education Foundation in 1996.
Realizing that state and federal funding for public education is limited, and always will be, the founding members helped raise more than $1 million, which was permanently invested in an endowment that will provide financial support for college and trade school scholarships, grant programs not funded through regular school budgets, and community organizations and events that assist families in the Beech Grove community.
The mission of the Beech Grove Education Foundation is to promote community support for excellence in education, and to provide the resources for new projects and creative approaches for existing programs, in order to prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of the future.

Establishing a Scholarship Fund
Any individual, family, business or organization can establish a scholarship fund by making a minimum investment of $10,000. The Foundation will invest the funds in the permanent endowment at the Central Indiana Community Foundation. A $10,000 endowment provides a $500 scholarship to a member of all future Beech Grove City School graduation classes.
A scholarship fund can be named in honor or memory of a loved one or for a business or organization. To learn more about establishing a Foundation scholarship fund, email the Foundation at
