This month, the Board of Trustees has announced a dollar-for-dollar Annual Fund challenge for Blue Ridge School alumni, parents, grandparents and friends.
During the month of May, the Board of Trustees will match new cash commitments up to a total of $15,000.
Thus, every new dollar you give is really two dollars!
This challenge is being issued by Chairman Mitch Rue '81 and Vice-chair Jill Kalinski (Sam '13) to inspire others to support the Blue Ridge School Annual Fund through new or increased annual fund giving.
This will give the Annual Fund a boost before the May 31st fiscal year deadline and bring it to its $725,000 goal.
If you have never given to Blue Ridge School Annual's Fund, your inaugural gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. It's never too late to start contributing, especially when your gift will now have double the impact!
If you made a gift a year or two ago, but have not yet made one this year, this is a wonderful way to re-engage and support BRS.
If you have already made a gift this year...thank you! If your charitable budget allows for a second contribution, know that it will be doubled by the Trustees!
As you know, all donations to the Annual Fund directly fund current educational offerings and opportunities in and out of the classroom.
Make a gift today! Call the Development staff at 434-992-0581, make a gift online using your credit card, or mail a check to the Development Office at 273 Mayo Road, St. George, VA, 22935.
Please write "Board Challenge" when making your donation.
I thank you in advance for your participation in Blue Ridge School's Annual Fund. Please know that every gift and commitment has a positive impact on our boys. We value the participation from our alumni, parents, alumni parents and friends and their acknowledgement of the continued good work done at Blue Ridge School.
"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
