The Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools (BCACS) Foundation was established in 1981 by a group of school parents and community leaders who realized that maintaining academic excellence meant continually facing escalating costs of instructional and facility improvements. In order to meet ongoing financial needs, these leaders concluded that continued success required cooperative resource management and innovative development efforts. The work of the BCACS Foundation ensures the future of Catholic education in Battle Creek.
The Foundation was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in July 1983. The BCACS Foundation’s tax identification number is 38-2477841.
The BCACS Foundation is guided by a team of talented trustees with diverse and broad experiences. A full-time development director works with the Foundation Board to develop fundraising and public relations programs designed to enhance and support the overall mission of the BCACSschools.
