Give to Black Pine Circle School

The Resilience Fund Campaign benefits every student in every classroom.

As with most independent schools, Black Pine Circle seeks donations from families and the broader school community to help close the gap between the cost of tuition and the full cost of a Black Pine Circle School education.

This year we will be using the RFC to also spotlight the considerable, unanticipated investments BPC continues to make to implement a strong distance-learning program, prepare our campus for the safe return of students and faculty, and ensure that we are well-positioned to succeed when the pandemic eases.

Our Request to You

We ask all families to contribute at a level that is meaningful to them, reflects their desire for a thriving school community, and is in keeping with their circumstances. Every gift, no matter the size, has an immediate impact and is deeply appreciated.

100% Participation

Broad support for the Resilience Fund is an important barometer of community engagement at a school and is something to celebrate! It sends an important message to major donors, foundations, teachers, and one another: that we are all committed to BPC and its mission. In recent years, we have achieved 100% participation from faculty, the board, staff and Parent Circle, and have been steadily approaching full participation in the parent body.

Leadership and Major Donors

BPC relies on the support, leadership, and loyalty of major donors to achieve its financial goals. We define major donors as households who contribute a minimum of $1,000 annually, and leadership donors who contribute $5,000 or more. The school encourages families who can make a gift at the major donor level or higher to do so. Each fall, the board of directors hosts a party to acknowledge major donors.
