Please help support the BHEF


The Bradley Hills Education Foundation (also known as the Foundation or BHEF) was founded in 2004 by a group of concerned parents of Bradley Hills Elementary School (BHES) students. These parents saw many necessary improvements to the school that had been put on hold for years (or possibly indefinitely) due to funding insufficiency in the Montgomery County Public School system (MCPS). In order to improve this situation, BHEF was formed to provide students at BHES a safer and engaging learning environment.  Each year the Foundation works with the school administration, identifies and funds necessary facility improvements/repair projects, technology upgrades, curriculum enhancement, and community outreach programs. Its main source of funding is donations from BHES families and local businesses.  When you donate to the Foundation, you are making an investment in your child's future.The Bradley Hills Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.

2020-2021 Engraved Brick Campaign

The Bradley Hills Education Foundation also invites you to buy an engraved brick and cement your legacy at BHES forever! Personalized bricks will be displayed permanently on the school grounds. Proceeds from the brick campaign will be used to fund technology and curriculum enhancements that are not funded by MCPS.

Families are welcome to buy bricks expressing appreciation for Bradley Hills, all teachers/staff, with family names, and in honor of special students (Please no political, religious or commercial messages).

Each BHES staff person will be recognized with his or her own personalized brick, purchased through a Staff Brick Fund. (Please do not request an inscription dedicated to an individual teacher or staff person).

Bricks cost $100 each and can be order through our foundation.
