What is the Annual Fund?
The Bosque School Annu
al Fund is a yearly appeal for donations that are vital to the daily operation and support of our school’s immediate needs and the many resources that directly benefit our students. The Bosque School Board of Trustees is committed to keeping tuition costs down. Working to not only maintain, but grow the annual fund will help cover additional costs associated with educating each student at the highest level of academic excellence. In addition, your annual fund gift is tax deductible, tuition is not.
Annual Fund gifts are put into action as soon as you make your gift, to be used where the money is needed the m
ost, supporting professional development, faculty salaries, educational equipment, supplies, technology, the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP), financial aid program, athletics, performing and fine arts, library, campus facilities and maintenance.
This is an exciting time for Bosque School as we embark on “Campaign ’14 – begin, believe, become!”
As always, the Annual Fund will remain the cornerstone of support for our school, funding the foundation of all we do.

Where does my money go when I give to the Annual Fund?
Your gift goes to work immediately supporting the current operations of the school. You may choose to give an “unrestricted” gift, and your money will be used to support the area of most need. Or you may designate your gift to one of the following categories:
Performing & fine arts
Need-based financial aid
(31% of Bosque students will receive some amount of need-based financial aid for the 2012-2013 school year).
Who else gives to Bosque School?
An important aspect of the Annual Fund program is reporting our Bosque community participation to foundations in order to receive grant money for the school. Many foundations evaluate the commitment level of our constituencies based on our annual giving participation levels. Every parent, grandparent, alumni, faculty and staff member, friend and business partner in the community that gives is as important as the dollar amount of the gift. Any size gift makes a difference and boosts our participation level to help us secure more foundation money for the school.
The Annual Fund is also supported by yearly Bosque School Special Events
such as Fall Fiesta, Bosque Golf Scramble and more!
In the 2011-2012 School Year, our Bos
que community raised $551,000 toward the Annual Fund and Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP).
