As a non-profit organization, BCEF is always looking for volunteers! Whether you can serve as a career mentor, help a new family integrate into the Bulldog community, spare some time assisting with mailings, help us with event planning, gather alumni information, or you want to step up to volunteer to serve on our board, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact BCEF Executive Director Anne Wilson at to find out more about volunteer opportunities.


BCEF depends on the generous contributions of citizens and businesses in order to keep expanding our grant programs.  Check out our sponsorship page for more information.
