Every fall, Bergman kicks off the Annual Fund as an exciting way to directly support the teachers and students within our school. The generosity of our parents, teachers, grandparents, and community makes a huge impact in the learning experience within Bergman's halls every single day.
What is the Annual Fund?
The Bergman Annual Fund is the school's yearly giving campaign that provides unrestricted operating support for the programs and activities that directly benefit your child. All contributions will be used within the 2021-22 school year. Plus, since Bergman is a 501(c)3, all gifts to the Annual Fund are fully tax deductible.
Why is the Annual Fund important?
Tuition lays the foundation to cover general operating expenses at Bergman. All Annual Fund gifts help to enhance and accelerate what we are able to do as a school beyond what tuition provides. This means your gift helps Bergman to remain the very best and continue to grow as a school through:
Enhanced curriculum and program materials
STEM and STEAM opportunities
New technology in the classroom
Professional development for teachers and staff
Special field trips and partnerships
Campus amenities and safety
What will the Annual Fund do this School Year?
Each year, the school lays out a few priorities that the Annual Fund will help to support.
The PDF below showcases just a few of the ways your gift will help to transform the educational experience this year at Bergman.
