BRIDGE THE GAP
The Annual Fund
Please help the Bridges Academy bridge the gap between the tuition charged and the actual cost to educate our students.
Where Does Your Contribution Go?
Your contribution to The Annual Fund is used immediately to directly and positively impact every student and member of faculty and staff, every day of the year. Funds this year will be used to enhance and enrich academic and extracurricular programs for our students, including physical education, health & wellness, cultural and language arts programs.
Tuition gives us a school. The Annual Fund gives us the Bridges experience.
Why Doesn’t Tuition Cover all of Bridges’ Expenses?
Tuition alone contributes only 90% of the operating budget of the school. The Bridges Academy, like other independent schools, utilizes tax-deductible donations rather than significant tuition increases to provide the best education possible. Tuition gives us a school. The Annual Fund gives us the Bridges experience.
How Much Should I Give and When?
Your contribution of ANY AMOUNT impacts the experience of all of our students and touches all corners of our building. We ask every family to regard The Bridges Academy as your top philanthropic priority and help us reach the $75,000 goal for this school year. At this point, we are halfway to reaching this tremendous milestone.
How Do I Give?
All donations will be accepted through June 30, 2020. Send in your tax deductible check to The Bridges Academy, 339 Snedecor Avenue, West Islip, NY 11730 or click the link below.
