Annual giving is an important source of financial support for scholarships, financial assistance, special projects, and many of the extras that make our academic, athletic, and leadership programs unique. Each year, members of the school community receive a letter asking for their support. We ask parents, alumni, employees, and friends of the school to make BCS a philanthropic priority.

Donations of all sizes are welcome. In fact, participation itself is in many ways as important as the amount given; a sense of community is strengthened when everyone gives and feels invested in the school’s mission of educating today’s youth. Gifts can be directed to specific areas or to the Highest Priority Fund for important projects identified by administration each year.

Gifts are recognized in the BCS Bulletin according to the following giving categories unless the donor chooses to remain anonymous:

Visionaries ($500,000+)
Founder’s Circle ($100,000+)
Builder’s Circle ($50,000+)
Benefactor’s Circle ($10,000+)
Chairman’s Circle ($5,000+)
Director’s Circle ($1,000+)
Head of School’s Circle ($500+)
Prefect’s Circle ($250+)
Friends (< $250)


Major Gifts & Capital Campaigns
Every major step forward at BCS has been, and continues to be, funded by parents, alumni, and friends who make significant commitments to the school. Major gifts and capital campaigns fund large projects, including construction and renovation of buildings, purchases of equipment and capital assets, new endowments for scholarships and financial assistance, and other special projects. BCS is now preparing for a new era of education excellence. Parents and alumni will be consulted on the strategic vision and invited to participate.
