BCE is #1 on Silicon Valley Gives Day

Tuesday was such a huge success for Burlingame schools! Together we raised a gross total of $285,241 from 618 unique donors. Thank you for your tremendous outpouring of support on Silicon Valley Gives Day.

SV Gives Day provided over 1,000 local nonprofits in Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco and San Benito Counties with an opportunity to inspire giving from their donors on this day. Over 23,000 donations were made to participating non-profit organizations.

Because of your overwhelming support of our local public schools, BCE Foundation was the #1 nonprofit for the category of most dollars raised on the 24-hour leaderboard throughout four counties. And although we did not retain the #1 spot in unique donors Tuesday night (which we’ve held for the last two years), efforts in the last hour to hold onto it resulted in even more dollars donated to both VIBHA, Inc. and BCE by their respective donor bases. We finished in the #2 spot with 618 unique donors supporting BCE. It was an exciting and successful finish for all involved.

Thank you for your generosity, and also for enlisting the support of neighbors, grandparents, and friends far and wide. Every single call, email, and conversation made a huge impact for our kids. Days like yesterday make me feel so lucky to be a member of this community.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and all 200+ BCE volunteers, please accept our deepest gratitude and congratulations to our kids!
