Why BIA Annual Fund

Giving to the Annual Fund is the most significant way to support the BIA School mission, core values and educational experience. Like all public Charter schools, BIA relies on philanthropic support from individuals, corporations and foundations in order to provide every part of the BIA School experience. A strong Annual Fund assures that all departments, classrooms, teachers and students have access to the latest resources to meet immediate needs and for continued improvements and growth.

Each year we seek 100% participation from our Board of Directors, Faculty and Staff and parents and reach beyond our own community for support from grandparents, friends, corporations and foundations.  BIA School is able to enhance the educational opportunities for its students because of your generosity!

Please consider making a gift today or contact Kevin Miller, Fundraising Chair, if you have questions.

Homes For Our Home (HFOH)

Unlike traditional schools, BIA receives no funding for facilities, leaving the school at a distinct financial disadvantage.  School leadership has chosen to turn this adversity into an opportunity by adopting a signature fundraising program that builds on teaching community outreach to children while incorporating Project-based Learning.
