Supporting Educational Excellence in Our Communities

BJ's "Adopt-A-School" ProgramBJ’s Adopt-A-School Program started in 1996 with a single school. Over the years, it has expanded to help schools in 15 states. The program’s mission: To give “adopted” schools support to enhance existing programs and curriculum objectives. It’s just another way to show that we care about our Members and their communities.

Now in its 18th year, BJ’s Adopt-a-School Program has provided more than $1.6 million in funding
to thousands of schools, helping ensure children receive a quality education.

Schools participating in BJ’s Adopt-A-School Program receive:

  • A one-time donation to use toward discretionary programs, such as field trips and special events,
    reading enhancement programs or other educational needs
  • A complimentary BJ’s Membership, providing access to low-cost, high-quality supplies
  • Invitations to BJ’s-sponsored events that promote good citizenship and build learning skills
