Foundation projects touch every student, elevating their educational experience in academics, the arts, athletics and student support services. The Foundation enables excellence at our school by helping maintain the competitive advantages that help keep our community strong and support fulfillment of the Bronxville Promise.
WHY WE EXIST
The Foundation exists to fund important and innovative projects the District budget cannot cover. These enhancements are vital to creating an excellent overall educational experience for our children and keeping our school competitive.
WHAT WE DO
The Foundation’s 30-member volunteer board works with teachers, the administration, students and parents to identify innovative ideas that will have the greatest impact on the most students. The Foundation board performs extensive due diligence on grant proposals. To fund those ideas, the Foundation raises money each year from school families, alumni and community members.
Foundation funds have direct and immediate impact by making many cutting-edge curricular and technology improvements possible. The grants are fast and flexible — many projects funded in May are up and running in classrooms in time for the new school year.
SCHOOL & COMMUNITY IMPACT
The Foundation positively impacts all three schools by supporting academics, arts, athletics, student support services, and faculty. By maintaining vital connections with alumni and the broader Bronxville community, the Foundation provides a means for all constituents to partner for Bronxville School’s progress.
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES US
The Foundation and the PTA play different, but complementary, roles at Bronxville School. The Foundation funds grant requests, primarily from teachers and administrators, for faculty training, curriculum enhancements, and upgrades to equipment and facilities. The PTA serves as a vital link between the school and parents to support communication, after-school enrichment programs, and athletic and community traditions.
The Foundation’s work is more critical than ever given the constraint of the NY state tax cap on District revenues. It is only through the ongoing and generous support of the community that we will keep our school and village strong.
