Thanks for making BCE #1 – WE DID IT

Dear Burlingame Community,

What a day it was! THANK YOU for your tremendous outpouring of support yesterday on Silicon Valley Gives Day.

Because of you, BCE Foundation was the #1 fundraiser for the second year in a row out of 863 participating non-profits throughout three counties. We led the way and raised a record-breaking $212,860 dollars for our students and schools, while the next closest organization was more than $70,000 behind us. We also finished the day #1 in the number of individual donors, which earned additional dollars in matching prizes.

Thank you 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!
