For many years, administrators, board members, and community members have talked about creating an organization that would help to support the efforts of the School District of Brown Deer.

In late 2013, serious discussion took place and the planning started. In July 2014, the Education Foundation of Brown Deer, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was created to provide a way for individuals, businesses, and organizations to share resources and gifts with the Brown Deer School community.
