The 2015 BCE Dinner Dance and Auction was an enormous success! In one night, we contributed over $500,000 (+14% vs. last year) to the BCE grant that will benefit all TK-8th grade children in BSD in the 2015-2016 school year. Our biggest event ever, with 435 guests, raised $330,000+ in 10 minutes in cash donations to Fund-A-Need during the live auction. Thank you to our generous donors who help give BSD children the education they deserve!
To sustain the programs that the BCE grant helped fund this year, we need to meet our financial goal by June 30th. We can do it, but we are not there yet. And what if we raise even more? We can impact professional development, music and art, and social emotional resources for our children.
On Tuesday, May 5th, BCE will be participating in Silicon Valley Gives Day (SVGives) which offers the possibility of matching dollars to participating non-profits. SVGives is a unique opportunity for families who have not yet contributed to this year’s annual campaign to make your BCE donation go even further! And of course, we are always grateful to all for joining in.
Last year, BCE was #1 in fundraising on SVGives Day, raising almost $190,000 in one day. Let’s make BCE #1 again this year!
How to help BCE get matching dollars and prizes on SVGives Day:
- On May 5th, visit the BCE website and donate online.
- You can pre-schedule your donation before May 5th on the SVGives website.
Remember, the BCE grant is for our children’s education. Every dollar counts!
