Our Mission

The purpose of the Bangor Education Foundation is to strengthen public education in Bangor, Maine. In the belief that sharing ideas and resources will benefit both the schools and the community, the Foundation serves as a flexible link between the greater Bangor community and the children of Bangor's public schools. The Foundation is dedicated to the principle that high quality public schools are essential to Bangor's economic and civic health.

Acting as a catalyst and broker, the Bangor Education Foundation works to channel funds from appropriate private and governmental sources into a range of efforts that support excellence in education in Bangor public schools. The Foundation strives to build strong and enduring bonds between the schools and the broader community so that Bangor schools may be as effective as possible in preparing an informed, responsible citizenry and a productive labor force.

The Bangor Education Foundation is an independent, nonprofit collaborative fund.
