To break the cycle of generational poverty, education is the strongest instrument for change. The Foundry’s Preschool and After School Academies are located in the West Side of Bowling Green to deliver impact where it is needed most. Through a dedication to kindergarten readiness and Christian faith, The Foundry partners with neighborhood schools and families to pave new paths for our children.

The Foundry offers their services for free to parents in need using an intervention educational model to make an incredible impact in the lives of young children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to excel educationally. The costs are covered entirely through grant and subsidy programs and donations from the community.

Support the monthly partner financially outside of worship by giving online, purchasing apparel from our online store, or by using the BUMC App.
