How Can Your Gift Have a Meaningful Impact?
The BRS Annual Fund has a unique structure which encourages donors to direct their support to programs and people which mean the most to them. Please contact JC Ignaszewski to review a comprehensive list of options.
Making a Package Gift:
Recently, many donors have embraced package giving - a combination which includes the Annual Fund and a capital or endowment initiative.
While supporting the BRS Annual Fund is always encouraged, gifts for the Baron Athletic Complex, endowment funds, and faculty housing are also essential investments.
“Across the entire academic building, Annual Fund donations provide classroom teachers with new projectors and whiteboards, some of them interactive, which promote the boy-friendly instruction practice of getting boys up and moving toward the board for a genuine check of their understanding before moving on in the lesson.” – Dr. Kevin Miller (Associate Headmaster for Academics)
