Here are a couple of examples of how your contribution would benefit the young men of Blue Ridge:
$5,000 gift and above would fund new computers, science field trips and building improvements.
$2,500 gift would fund educational field trips to Washington, D.C., or Colonial Williamsburg, weekend outdoor trips (hiking the Appalachian Trail) and teachers' conferences.
$1,000 gift would fund course preparation for SAT/ACT, Biology equipment and Shakespeare’s literary work.
$500 gift would fund mountain biking (the outdoor program), computer software, and athletic equipment.
$250 gift would fund graphing calculators, maps and compasses, and mountain climbing equipment.
$100 gift would fund lab supplies for Chemistry, educational DVDs, and reference books for the library.

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.
"AS A HISTORY TEACHER, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR MY STUDENTS TO SEE THE PLACES THAT WE SPEND SO MUCH TIME TALKING ABOUT IN THE CLASSROOM. IT WOULD BE A SHAME NOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THE HISTORICAL SITES AROUND US IN CENTRAL VIRGINIA; THE ANNUAL FUND MAKES DOING SO POSSIBLE."
– PETER BONDS, HISTORY TEACHER
