Club Pride Annual Fund
Club Pride is our Annual Fund. Donations received supplement tuition income to meet the needs of the School's daily operating expenses. BCS is a not-for-profit organization and like most private schools the tuition is set below the actual cost of educating each child. Annual gifts supply critical resources needed to bridge this gap and maintain the best possible programs for every student on our campus.
The Club Pride Annual Fund impacts all facets of each student’s Bradshaw experience and has a direct and daily impact. Each year gifts are posted to the general fund, unless otherwise designated, and support the entire school budget in many ways including:
- Faculty salaries and ongoing professional development
- Academic curriculum and equipment
- A diverse student body
- Student financial aid
- Visual and performing arts
- Athletics programs, coaches and equipment
- Maintenance and improvement of campus facilities
In addition to covering the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a BCS education, our goal is 100% participation by all families, faculty, staff, and friends. Participation is the percentage of parents, faculty and staff, grandparents and friends who donate a gift of any size to the Club Pride Annual Fund.
The Club Pride Annual Fund succeeds as a shared effort by our entire community. Every gift makes a difference. Even a small increase in the percent of participation or the size of an average gift can have a big impact on Bradshaw’s Annual Fund success. Annual Fund participation also inspires major donors to give more generously and for corporations to consider contributing since strong participation demonstrates confidence in our mission. It is a reflection of our community’s commitment to our future success.
Giving is Simple
Cash, checks and credit cards accepted (online). Stop in any office; mail to: BCS Development Department, 8324 Bradshaw Road, Sacramento, CA 95829; or donate with our secure online giving button to the right. It is convenient and safe.
Giving is Meaningful
While unrestricted donations to the “Greatest Need/General Fund” provide the greatest flexibility to meet the immediate needs of the School, gifts may be designated to what is most meaningful to your family:
- Bradshaw's Greatest Need/General Fund
- Arts (in general or specifically to Band, Drama or Visual Arts)
- Athletics (in general or to a specific sport)
You may also give a gift in Memory or in Honor of someone. Donors are acknowledged on our website, school banners and in special program bulletins throughout the year. Donors may also give anonymously.
Giving is Impactful
Be a vital part of Bradshaw Christian School every year by contributing to the Annual Fund. Your gift helps provide additional opportunities for our children as well as critical resources that are not covered by tuition.
