Thank you for choosing to make a pledge to Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley's Annual Fund. A pledge gives you the option to make your gift payment at a later date, anytime before April 30, 2020. Please note that your pledge will be counted in this year's 2019-2020 operating budget. Thank you for committing to honor your pledge by your chosen due date. Merci!
For the 2019-2020 school year, our operating budget is set at $14.5 million. Tuition and fees will cover only 91% of this. Along with other income and fundraising efforts, the Annual Fund must bridge this gap between tuition and the full cost of an EB education.
The recommended Annual Fund gift this year is $2,000 per child.
Gift income is standard practice at all independent schools because of the many advantages it brings. Gift are:
- Tax deductible
- Adjustable to each family's financial comfort
- Eligible for corporate matching
- A demonstration of community support to outside foundations, donors, and grant providers
Thank you for your support! Merci!
