Brickton Annual Fund 2020-2021
Donation form below. Thank you!
Our goal at Brickton is to provide students with exceptional learning opportunities. The Annual Fund makes essential academic programs and activities possible within the day-to-day operation of the school.
The Annual Fund recognizes several giving levels, but know that every gift, regardless of size, is valued because it makes a statement about the community’s shared vision and commitment. Your Annual Fund contributions support:
$2,500+ Tuition assistance to support a diverse school community committed to quality education for all
$1,000 – $2,499 Educational technology to ensure students and faculty have the tools they need for learning and teaching
$500 – $999 Professional development opportunities for our faculty to stay abreast of the latest information in educational best practices
Montessori Materials for the classrooms. Each material in a Montessori classroom invites activity and allows the child to explore as the materials interrelate and build upon each other
$365 – $499 Field trips, Enrichment programming, such as arts, music, Spanish, physical education, attending live professional fine arts performances, and educational and experiential field trips
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Our faculty and Board of Directors also demonstrate their commitment with a goal of 100% participation. We hope our families and friends will join us in the commitment. All donations are appreciated.
