Our goal is to sustain strong earnings while limiting risk to principal.

BCPL manages four school trust funds for its beneficiaries, the largest and most important of which is the Common School Fund. The school trust funds are carefully invested to produce strong earnings to support public education. One investment vehicle is the BCPL State Trust Fund Loan Program, which lends money to school districts and municipalities for a wide variety of public purposes.

This Summary of Trust Assets provides an overview of the origins, investments, earnings, and distributions of all four Trust Funds.
