Since 1990, the Blount County Education Foundation (BCEF) has succeeded by delivering needed educational tools to students and teachers in all county schools. Core to the BCEF is the mini-grant program, typically funding more than 30 mini-grants each school year.

BCEF presented $100,000 to the Blount County School system on Friday, September 11, 2015, at the annual Employee/Family Appreciation event. The funds will be dispersed throughout the District to all 21 schools for student needs.
