Join us as we raise money FORE OUR SCHOOLS! Goal is $50k!


On behalf of the Brainerd Public School Foundation, we are very excited to announce The Big Event, a celebration of the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation that will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 at the Legacy Pavilion. This is a volunteer organized event to celebrate our public schools and raise funds for the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation (BPSF). This year’s golf-themed fundraiser is a nearly SOLD-OUT EVENT, with 300+ attendees in our fifth year. The Big Event appeals to local residents as well as people from outside the area as the Brainerd alumni reach goes quite far.

FORE OUR SCHOOLS!  We invite our VIP guests to arrive for a 5pm “tee time” and the General Admission folks will tee up at 5:30pm.  During our Clubhouse Social Hour you can browse through the SILENT AUCTION tables, join in on the RAFFLES, play some golf-related GAMES – including the golf simulator, and check out our 4A GRANT DEMONSTRATIONS!  The live musical talents of BHS Student: Ukilili (Lili Charlier) can be enjoyed during social hour.   A delicious Mixed Greens Salad with Berries, Irma’s Potroast, and Dessert will be served about 7pm.  Program and live auction to follow.  Keep the fun going when you join us in the Legacy Grille for the 19th Hole After-Party with live music from Dave Burkart.

The online auction will open at 10am on Tuesday, January 30th and will close at 8:45pm on Saturday, February 3, 2018. CLICK HERE TO VIEW AUCTION

Brainerd Public Schools FOUNDATION

The VISION of the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation is for the young people of the Brainerd Lakes Area to have the finest educational opportunities possible to enable all individuals to reach their full potential as learners, participants, citizens, artists, athletes and contributors to our community and the whole of society.

The MISSION of the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation is to enhance opportunities for quality academics, arts, activities and athletics for the students of the Brainerd Public School District.

Class Funds – Scholarship or 4A Grants

The classes of 1945, 1946, 1954, and 1974 each have one in place.  Currently the Classes of 1967 and 1969 are both working to set up funds! SO EXCITING!

How does this work? The Brainerd Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) has endowments established for this purpose.  The process is fairly simple.  As a class you choose your desired intention and sign a fund agreement.  Currently, our two fund options are: Scholarship Funds or start a 4A Grant Funds.  Scholarships are awarded annually in May at our Senior Recognition Night to graduating seniors. 4A Grants are designed to support the Arts, Academics, Athletics and Activities for the students of the Brainerd Public Schools. Brainerd Public Schools staff are encouraged to apply for funds to carry-out a unique or innovative program/project they want to facilitate that general operating dollars simply cannot support. 4A grants are awarded to school district staff and coaches in December of each year.   Donations are tax-deductible.
