The Annual Fund is Bethany Community School’s foremost fundraising initiative each year, standing as the cornerstone of our commitment to excellence in education. It plays a pivotal role in shaping the educational experience of our students and faculty, offering crucial and unrestricted support for our operating budget. These unrestricted gifts bestow upon us the agility and responsiveness needed to adapt to the evolving needs and requirements of our institution.
Notably, as a public charter school, Bethany Community School operates with significantly less funding than traditional public schools, receiving only 78% of the funding that standard public-school students receive. Despite this challenge, we take immense pride in the robust support that the Annual Fund garners from the entire BCS community. This unwavering commitment encompasses parents, alumni, dedicated faculty and staff, parents of alumni, loving grandparents, and friends of the school. It is this collective dedication that empowers us to continually enhance the educational journey we offer our students, all while maintaining the unwavering standards of excellence synonymous with Bethany Community School.
Your support is invaluable, bridging the funding gap and ensuring our students receive the best possible education. It is through the generosity and dedication of individuals like you that we can continue to thrive and provide a top-tier educational experience that prepares our students for a bright and promising future. Thank you for being an essential part of our community and helping us achieve our mission.
