Support Brehm

Creating A Lasting Impact

Giving through the Brehm Foundation empowers breakthrough solutions and life-changing results for our students. Through the generosity of our supporters, we increase the quality of the programs for our students, equip our staff to be successful, help more families enroll, and go beyond the operational budget. We ensure the future of Brehm Preparatory School and OPTIONS.

You can make a lasting impact today by supporting the successes of our students and staff at Brehm Preparatory School and OPTIONS Transitions to Independence.

Annual Giving: Putting the Extra in Extra-Ordinary

Annual Giving provides the “extra” that makes Brehm extraordinary, with hands-on experiences such as field trips, cutting-edge classroom technology, and student-interest classes ranging from culinary instruction to 3D printing to participation in nation-wide research projects.

Scholarships and Tuition Assistance

Annual Giving also supports scholarships and tuition assistance to help recognize  students’ successes and benefit families by offsetting tuition costs. Tuition Assistance is awarded by the Tuition Assistance committee and is based on a family’s stated need and availability of funds raised. 

Eligible students receiving merit-based and needs-based scholarships go through an application process and are awarded scholarships by the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee.

Our scholarships include:

  • Carey Marie Walsh Memorial Scholarship
  • OPTIONS Memorial Scholarship
  • Tyson Brehm Memorial Scholarship
  • Myranda’s Child and Family Foundation Scholarship
  • Coach Greg Douglas Honorary and Heritage Scholarship
