The BEE Fund – BEElieve in Brandon

2023-24 BEElieve in Brandon: The BEE Fund

BEELieve in Brandon

The BEE Fund is the largest source of funding for the Morris Brandon Elementary School Foundation, supporting critical resources and enhancements not covered by the operating budget.

You can make an impact on the experience for each student, faculty, and staff member on campus. Make your gift today!


 What is the BEE Fund?

The annual BEE Fund campaign is the most effective way for Morris Brandon parents to provide resources for the school and our teachers. Gifts to the BEE Fund support the Morris Brandon Elementary School Foundation, which is the non-profit foundation that funds resources not covered by the Atlanta Public School budget, such as curriculum enrichment, capital improvements and the “extras” that make your child’s Morris Brandon experience special.
