Charitable gifts are essential to BRS' ongoing success. Each year, nearly 1,000 people make it a priority to support the School, contributing more than $2.0 million in new cash and pledges.
We are proud that each and every gift to Blue Ridge makes a difference. Gifts of all sizes – made to support a wide variety of programs – come together to underwrite nearly 10% of our annual operating budget, and 100% of our new capital and endowment investments.
Bottom line – without strong and consistent philanthropic support, Blue Ridge could not be the great school it is.
The videos and links provide some of the reasons and ways that alumni, parents, and friends support BRS. Whether through the Annual Fund, through support of current capital projects, or through essential endowment funds, your gifts are an investment in the boys we serve and the extraordinary people here who serve them.
We hope your review of this information is both helpful and inspiring!
Many BRS donors make their gifts online, and we invite your use of this system. A confirmation of your gift will be emailed to you immediately upon receipt, as well as a traditional paper confirmation sent via regular mail in the next few days. Special thanks to our most recent donors who have shown their support - click here.
If you have questions of any kind about anything you see here, please contact a member of the Advancement team – it would be a pleasure to be of service.

“This year, we have received a 3D printer that our boys will use to design unique chess sets and a large scale printer which allows us to take a student’s digital work from postcard size to poster size. In the studio proper, we have purchased plaster-carving tools that will help us create a full scale totem pole. In the ceramics studio we have added an additional pottery wheel for making signature BRS coffee mugs.” – David Welty (Art Teacher)
