WE ASK FOR $600 PER STUDENT… but please donate whatever you can afford to help us meet our fundraising goals. The only way we can provide YOUR children with the education we have come to expect from our exceptional school is through YOUR charitable donations.

At the very least, please put your child’s name on the form and turn it in so his/her class gets participation credit.

If you donated at a Bronze level or higher and did not receive your Bay Laurel magnet, please pick one up in the office! 
Does your company have a matching program?  Many companies will match your donation dollar for dollar! If you paid online and your company has a matching program, please contact us at  BayLaurelAFD@gmail.com  and let us know!
