Sample: About us


The British & Foreign School Society (BFSS) is a grant giving organisation that offers funding for education projects in the UK and around the world.

We fund International projects which improve access, quality and sustainability of education in marginalised and low-income communities, UK projects which improve educational outcomes and life chances for Young Carers and Care Experienced Young People, and projects to address the specific challenges that children and young people who have been displaced by conflict face in accessing quality education.
