The purpose of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School (CBGS) Education Foundation is to broaden the community’s awareness of CBGS’s excellence in education, and to financially contribute to needs of the school – scholarships, educational events, field trips, activities and competitions, and equipment for which the CBGS annual budget (consisting of state and district funds) may not be able to provide.

The Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization incorporated in 1998, the year CBGS was founded. The school consists of a student body of high-ability learners from 14 school divisions: Caroline, King George, King William, Colonial Beach, Westmoreland, Richmond, Northumberland, Lancaster, Essex, New Kent, King and Queen, Middlesex, Mathews, and Gloucester. The Foundation is composed of current and past CBGS parents, alumni, supportive business and community members, the Director of CBGS, and a faculty liaison.
