Give to Black Pine Circle School

The Annual Fund 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.

Annual Fund dollars allow us to invest more in tuition assistance, our faculty, our facilities, enrichment activities, and other critical areas. It also allows us to keep tuition lower overall.

BPC Annual Fund

Our Request to You

We ask all families to contribute at a level that is meaningful to them, reflects your 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. The Annual Fund Campaign commences each fall and concludes on June 30 of the following year.

100% Participation

Broad support for the Annual 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.

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. The school encourages families who can make a gift at this level or higher to do so. Each fall, the board of directors hosts a party to acknowledge major donors.
