A Day for BSF – 2017

The One day fundraiser was a success. But the BSF could still use your donations. And GABIDDC could use some help too. Please donate to either of us at.

Please let them know that you were referred from GABIDDC.

One Day Fundraiser

To GABIDDC Members and Readers:

Letter from The Exective Director of the BSF:

“Last June with your generous support during BSF one day June fundraiser, BSF was able to raise $4k. I want to thank you and ask that you again help us raise $5k on our 24 hr “one day fundraiser” on June 7, 2017.”

“Much has transpired in twelve months. One could say it is the best of times and the most challenging of times. Every BSF senior had multiple college offers but BSF services were required to help families address college financial aid gaps. BSF continued to work with member schools on issues of diversity and inclusion while fielding more calls and emails from families concerned about the climate and culture in independent education. Over nine hundred families applied to BSF for membership for Fall 2017 but we were only able to accept less than 5%. Across the work of BSF the story is joy and pain.”

“Your continued financial support will allow BSF to respond to today‚Äôs demand and continue to create opportunity and access for talented students of color at independent schools. Funds raised from this effort will support summer programs and academic enrichment.”

If you donated last year, I hope you will match that donation this year.

This year we are soliciting you directly and using our on line donation page to reduce costs we incurred last year. You are encouraged to make you donation today on line at:

Please let them know that you were referred from GABIDDC.

Thanks for giving us the resources to Build Strong Futures.
