Boston Educational Development Fund
BEDF is a K-12 education foundation to the Boston Public Schools (BPS). It facilitates the access to philanthropic opportunities and private resources for the purpose of enhancing educational opportunities to BPS students that would otherwise be limited or not available to them.
We partner with schools, funders, and the school department to provide fiscal sponsorship services to complementary programs and strategic initiatives, such as out of school time, enrichment, arts and health activities for students, leadership and professional development for educators, engagement activities for families, and several academic initiatives. We provide fundraising support to schools and programs for them to sustain their operations and increase their educational impact. BEDF manages approximately $12 million in private funding from local and national supporters and foundations.
