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: giving “adopted” schools support they can use to enhance existing programs and curriculum objectives. It is just another way we care about our Members and the communities that they live in.

Now in its 19th year, BJ’s Adopt-A-School program has provided more than $1.8 million in funding to thousands of schools, helping ensure children receive a quality education.

Schools participating in BJ’s Adopt-A-School Giving 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 Business Membership, providing access to low-cost, high-quality supplies
