ANNUAL FUND UPDATE

Records are made to be broken!

Faculty and staff participation in the Annual Fund reached a record 98% - in just 12 days.

In addition to our amazing faculty and staff, we are fortunate at Beaver to have the participation and philanthropic support of the majority of our parent community. Last year, the community raised $1.62M and had 89% parent participation.

Let’s follow the lead of our dear faculty and staff and maintain parent participation in excess of 90%. A robust culture of giving allows the school to attract and retain teachers by offering competitive salaries and enriching professional development opportunities. We are so grateful for your generous consideration and hope you will join us by making a gift. www.bcdschool.org/give Carolyn and Josh Kraft P’16, ’18
