Annual Fund – Funding Priorities
Annual giving benefits every single student at BSS. The Annual Fund aims to further the School’s mission of providing each student the opportunity to develop her unique voice, confidence and sense of purpose by extending the girls’ education beyond the four classroom walls.
Tuition fees cover the day to day expenses and operations of the basic necessities, but the Annual Fund provides that margin of excellence upon which BSS has built its reputation as a leading independent school. Participation in the Annual Fund – at any level – is vital. This is why, each year we ask every member of the BSS community to give to the Annual Fund. We ask families, Old Girls, friends, and staff to consider a gift at a level that is comfortable to them.
Having a strong Annual Fund allows staff and faculty the opportunity to enrich their curriculum and classrooms beyond the basic operating budget each year, it also provides crucial financial assistance for some of our students. Giving to the Annual Fund is the best way to have an immediate impact on the girls’ education and ensure that BSS remains at the forefront of girls’ education.
