Please Join Mayor Muriel Bowser, Councilmember Brandon Todd, GABIDDC persons and Ward 4 community members in the “Walter Reed Dreams” celebration of the history and future of the Walter Reed Army Medical Site on April 29, 2017 from 2-5pm.

We will be participating in and celebrating the “Walter Reed Dreams,” a community-driven arts and culture tribute, featuring multiple activities as part of the redevelopment of the Walter Reed campus.

“In 1904, Major William C. Borden envisioned a complex that would combine medical treatment, research, and education together– the framework for the future Walter Reed Army Medical Center. It was called “Borden’s Dream” by a doubtful congressman, and the ambitious moniker remained.

Dance Theater of Harlem October 15 2016

Dance Theatre of Harlem Benefit Event

Please join the Black Student Fund at a benefit performance by The Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) on October 15, 2016 at 8 pm at the Sidney Harman Hall. BSF will host a pre-performance reception from 6:30 pm -7:30 pm at Harman Hall.

Attacca Quartet, Choreographed by Francesca Harper, Music by John Adams.

This fall DTH presents a program including the D.C. premiere of a piece by internationally acclaimed choreographer Francesca Harper, set to the music of John Adams and performed live by the Attacca Quartet, a premier young performing ensemble.

For those new to the The Black Student Fund, we were founded more than fifty years ago, by a group of concerned parents, to integrate Washington, DC area independent schools. Former board members include Ernie Green, one of the Little Rock Nine as well as former Secretary of State Madeline Albright who continue to champion our efforts.

BSF has helped thousands of students achieve academic excellence by providing tailored wrap around services for our students and families. We take pride in knowing that all of our students in the last twenty years have graduated from college with one third going on to earn graduate and professional degrees. Currently we support ninety-two students at our 52 member schools.

BSF is most noted, in the Washington metropolitan area for hosting an annual school fair, which brings together independent schools, parents and potential students. On October 9th, BSF in partnership with the Latino Student Fund will present the 44th Independent School Fair, which attracted more than three thousand people last year.

These two videos on BSF alumni, produced by Stone Soup Films, tell our story.

Please join BSF for a worthwhile evening at our Benefit Performance of the Dance Theatre of Harlem on October 15, 2016. The cost is $90.
