Bison Opportunity Fund

Join us in honoring retired treasurer Michele Mills and her legacy of public service. Beachwood Schools has established the Bison Opportunity Fund in recognition of her significant contributions to the Beachwood community. Learn how you can build on this legacy and make a positive difference in the lives of students.

Your Support Can Make a Difference

The Bison Opportunity Fund is dedicated to furthering Ms. Mills' mission of supporting every student's success. Donations to the Bison Opportunity Fund will supply each school with snacks and school supplies for staff to distribute to students in need; provide “like new” Bison apparel; and support students’ participation in extracurricular travel, course fees, and prom tickets that families may not be able to afford.

How You Can Help

We invite the Beachwood community to contribute:

  • Non-perishable, individually packaged snacks (granola bars, raisins, pretzels, etc.)
  • New school supplies 
  • Clean, "like new" Bison apparel (all sizes and designs; free of tears, stains, etc.)
  • Monetary donations to the Bison Opportunity Fund via cash, credit card, or online contribution.

Donations bins are located in the front lobby of all school buildings.
