Your Support Matters

  
Thank you for visiting The Benjamin School Support pages.


As a 501 c 3 non-profit, our school is built on philanthropy and would not be a top-tier independent school without financial help from parents, alumni, grandparents, friends, and foundations.

Here are the ways you can support TBS:

The cornerstone of Benjamin giving is the Annual Fund. It supports the School’s challenging and innovative academic programs, faculty professional development, arts, athletics, co-curricular activities, and technology upgrades on both campuses. Since tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Benjamin education, the Annual Fund is a critical component of our annual budget. We welcome gifts of all sizes, but most importantly, we strive for 100% participation from our community. 

Make your gift online here. 
The largest fundraising event of the year is our BASH Gala. BASH stands for Building A Scholastic Heritage and has provided critical unrestricted dollars to the School since 1985. The highlight of BASH is the gala itself where parents and friends of the school get together to build community through dinner, dancing and fun. Additionally, parents are invited to donate their time on a variety of planning sub-committees. The evening is complete with silent, almost live, and live auctions. Parents, friends, and local businesses can support BASH through auction donations, advertising and sponsorships.
  

From time to time schools will enter into a capital campaign to build new facilities or renovate old ones. This fundraising effort is not supported by annual fund dollars. At this time, the School is in the preliminary “quiet” phase of a multi-million dollar campaign gathering cornerstone gifts that will enable Benjamin to start building for the future. Exciting projects are slated for both campuses and will affect every student and teacher. For more information, please contact Chief Development Officer Juan Carlos Fanjul ‘93 at juancarlos.fanjul@thebenjaminschool.org or 561-472-3480.
Gifts to endowment help The Benjamin School secure its future. Unlike annual gifts, gifts to endowment are added to the School’s investment funds with the principal left untouched. The return on those investments is used to bolster the annual budget and allows the school to weather any downturn in enrollment or the economy.  For more on endowment giving, please contact Director of Leadership Giving Sammy Atkinson at samantha.atkinson@thebenjaminschool.org or 561-472-3485 
Planned gifts provide general and endowment support to Benjamin through individuals’ will and estate plans. For more on planned giving, please click here.
