Welcome from our Executive Director 


    Hello, I am Suzi Bruin and I want you to know that BCSF is doing great things for education in our community!  We are the oldest school foundation in the state of Indiana and are proud to be supporting Equity, Innovation, and Opportunity with BCSC programs and initiatives.  Please see below about a wonderful gift that you can obtain while helping support teachers, students and staff with your tax-deductible donation to BCSF. We are a 501(C) 3 non profit organization.

    Jess    BCSF welcomes Jess Schnepp as BCSF's Fundraising Coordinator

    Please join Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation (BCSF) in welcoming Jess Schnepp as our new BCSF Fundraising Coordinator! As the Executive Director of BCSF, I am excited and honored to have Jess on our team. 

    With her passion for children and education, Jess will be a great addition to BCSF as we embark on new growth strategies to create a greater impact for BCSC students and staff. She will focus on raising community awareness of all that BCSF has to offer not only to BCSC students and staff, but as a community partner dedicated to educational excellence for everyone. Jess will also focus on securing funds for BCSF to create more opportunities for innovative educational experiences for all. 

    With a wealth of knowledge and experience, Jess most recently gained experience as the Fundraising Coordinator with The Linden Project Committee while successfully raising funds through various methods of grassroots fundraising, an online matching donation campaign and writing grant proposals to create an architectural based outdoor learning environment at CSA Lincoln Elementary. For all their efforts, The Linden Project Committee also received the 2017 James A. Henderson Award for Fundraising Excellence from The Heritage Fund. 

    With the support of her husband and three children, Jess looks forward to building more relationships throughout the community and assisting BCSF grow to its full potential. Her favorite quote sums up her dedicated work ethic, “Do or do not. There is no try.” We are excited to see what she and BCSF can DO in the years to come! 

    Please feel free to reach out to Jess to congratulate her on her new journey or contact her with any questions you might have on how you can help BCSF grow. She may be reached at:
