The mission of the Birmingham Education Foundation (BEF) is to bring the voice of the community to Birmingham City Schools’ leadership and to work with that leadership to provide a range of support to allow the system to fulfill its mission and vision. We do this with a vision that the children of Birmingham will be fully prepared for success in work and in life. We believe unequivocally that current circumstances should not be a barrier to future success.
We support the Birmingham City School system through a range of initiatives focused on four main areas:
- Student achievement
- Parental involvement
- Educator support
- Community engagement
