Brown Deer Scholarship Fund
For the 41st year, the Brown Deer Scholarship Fund, administered by the Education Foundation of Brown Deer (EFBD), is making a community-wide appeal for donations to be used for college scholarships – this year for the graduating seniors of the Class of 2017. Scholarships are awarded to well-rounded students, who have achieved a high level of academic standing and have participated in extracurricular activities along with community involvement.
Since 1977, you and your neighbors have helped fund over $950,000 in college scholarships
to 1,174 Brown Deer High School graduates. These well-deserving students used their scholarships to attend accredited universities and technical colleges. Your support has made this possible!
We thank you for your past support, and we ask for your continued support in 2017. Any gift large or small is appreciated. The 2017 student recipients will be announced at the Brown Deer High School Awards Ceremony in June.

Brown Deer, WI - All-America City
June 19th, 2016, in Denver, Brown Deer was selected as one of 10 winners in the 2016 All-America City Awards, an honor given each year to towns, cities, counties, tribes, neighborhoods and metropolitan regions for outstanding civic accomplishments. This is a tremendous honor and accomplishment for our Village of Brown Deer!!! The awards are given to 10 entries each year. This program has been in place since the award was launched in 1949. A delegation from the school district, including students and staff members, as well as representatives of the Village made the trip and participated in the application and presentation process. Funding for the trip was provided by private donations from generous supporters. This year the program highlighted community efforts “to ensure that all our children are healthy and successful in school and life”.
THANKS FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The Education Foundation is announcing a new program, Thanks for Making a Difference, that will provide a way for parents, students, community members, and alumni to recognize teachers, coaches, and other staff who have been inspirational and/or made a difference in their lives or in the lives of their children. It also is a way to honor or remember a friend or family member, by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Education Foundation in their name. Your gift supports education and innovative programs for all students throughout the district.
