The Bismarck Public school District and Foundation have made a commitment to strengthen our community by valuing people for who they are, nurturing our diversity and embracing the contributions of all students, families and staff.

By supporting the BPS Family Assistance fund, you are not only providing basic needs for BPS students and their families who are struggling, you are also allowing BPS teachers the ability to focus on our mission to empower every learner to thrive. Most often these families do not qualify for existing community supports or have not yet been approved and need immediate assistance. In addition to things like rent and utility assistance, this fund also provides for basic essentials such as hygiene items, household cleaning items, pantry items and basic clothing needs.

The BPS Family Assistance fund alleviates BPS schools’ need to fundraise for these efforts on an individual school basis.  In addition to being a centralized resource for our schools, the distribution of items is facilitated through the BPS Student Services program, providing authentic work experiences for BPS students.

We ask that you join the BPS Foundation, Eide Ford & Eide Chrysler in helping our struggling families by donating to our BPS Family Assistance Fund during Giving Hearts Day. All donations up to $8000 will be matched and go to fund basic needs for struggling families. Double your donation and help our local BPS families in need. Please go to now through Thursday, February 10th and give today!

Give Anytime to this great cause.

Please go to to donate online February 10th or after February 10th at or by sending a check by mail to the BPS Foundation attn: BPSFAF at 806 N Washington St, Bismarck, ND 58501.


Partner with the BPS District to empower every learner to thrive by enhancing the services and recognition of students and staff.
