The BB&N Fund

The BB&N Fund is our primary giving priority and a crucial component of BB&N's annual operating budget. It directly supports our greatest assets: exceptional faculty, staff, and students, academic excellence and innovation, and a diverse, motivated community.

We rely on the generosity of current and past parents, alumni/ae, faculty, staff, and friends to help bridge the gap between tuition revenue, endowment income, and the full cost of a BB&N education for each student. A successful BB&N Fund supports the School's daily operations, keeps tuition increases to a minimum, and provides flexible resources each year to engage the community and fulfill our mission.

When making your BB&N Fund gift you may designate it to the area of greatest need or to a specific area of interest.

The BB&N Fund FAQs

When do I donate?

Our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30, and gifts go to work in the current school year. Although we gratefully accept gifts at any time, contributing to The BB&N Fund early in the fiscal year provides immediate access to funds for developing curricular and program needs.

How is the BB&N Fund used?

The BB&N Fund provides nearly 8% of BB&N's annual operating budget and allows flexibility in responding to changing operational needs each year. It makes an impact on every aspect of the School's daily life, such as:
 
  • Supporting more than 150 teaching faculty across all three campuses
  • Enabling students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni/ae to make connections locally and around the world
  • Continuing investments in new technology and supplies for teaching and learning
  • Ensuring a safe, secure, and healthy environment through a well-maintained physical plant and resources for emotional and social well-being
  • Engaging a community diverse in thought, identity, experience, and socioeconomics

Why should I give?

Every gift, no matter what size, makes a difference to BB&N. Participating as a donor shows that you consider BB&N's mission, values, and community to be important and worth sustaining. All students, faculty, and staff benefit from The BB&N Fund, which offers flexibility to respond quickly to operational needs as they arise.
