BFS believes in partnerships. Supporting BFS begins by building relationships with our current students and parents, our alumni, our former parents, former faculty and friends of the School. This support is what enriches and expands the worldwide network of our BFS family.
Building a community of support begins on the first day you enter the School. What strikes you immediately are the happy, welcoming smiles of our students, teachers, and parents. You will be pleasantly surprised to see that support comes in many forms at BFS.
Our faculty and staff support our students every day in the classroom. They cheer them forward on the athletic fields and on stage. They give their time and talents to ensure that our students are well prepared for their next adventure, be it in another international school or for a university.
Our Board provides leadership, vision, and fiduciary support to the School. They also support BFS in tangible ways, individually and collectively, making annual donations to the Fund for BFS.
Our PTSO works hard to ensure the well being of our students and parents, and our faculty and staff as well. Our current parents work as volunteers for the many events at the School such as our Halloween Treat or Trick, Thanksgiving lunch and so much more. In addition, parents donate the funds that make a critical difference to BFS’ academic and extra-curricular programs.
Our alumni provide a vast network of services by supporting the School’s mission in their own countries and communities.
Corporations and businesses understand that BFS provides a special service to their employees. These companies need an international school that understands the needs of their mobile families and that upholds the academic standards for their multi-national children.

We Thank You for your continuous support!
The Busan Foreign School Annual Fund provides additional financial resources to promote further enhancements for our school.
The purpose of the fund is to provide BFS with the financial flexibility to better ensure the best possible educational experience for our students.
Due to the generosity of our Annual Fund donors, we are able to accelerate and intensify our investments in the most critical improvements for BFS. Donations directly impact the quality of education, teaching environments, and other essential services.
Tuition and fees mainly cover the cost of maintaining the school, but your donation to BFS will support a variety of enhancements, such as:
- additional financial aid and scholarships for promising students;
- innovative educational resources to improve our academic curriculum and extra-curricular activities;
- state-of-the-art technological and facility improvements;
- increased professional development to guarantee the highest quality teachers and staff;
- improved transportation capabilities.
To show our appreciation for the generosity of our donors, we have created a physical symbol of our Annual Fund: The Busan Foreign School Giving Tree. This is located in the main lobby. Those who make a substantial contribution to the Annual Fund will have their name or a short message engraved in one of the leaves. This will remain as a lasting display of our appreciation for your generosity.
On behalf of the staff and students, we greatly appreciate your willingness to contribute.
