Support BSI and get matching funds this Giving Tuesday!

We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!!! 

After all the deals and specials of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, comes the importance of giving on Giving Tuesday. Starting at 8 a.m. EST  on Tuesday morning, December 1, Facebook is giving out $7 million in matching funds. 

Last year $7 million dollars was gone in the first 16 seconds! The money will go fast this year too, so please:

Please donate right at 8 a.m. if you are able.

Together we can make a big difference in our children’s education. We are launching this year’s fundraising campaign, which raises money for the 2021-22 school year.  We hope to all be back in person in Bensonhurst, and we will want to fully fund our specialty teachers, teaching assistants and enrichment programs. Click here to go to our Facebook campaign and donate what you can to secure the matching dollars they are offering.

For the month of December, starting on Tuesday we are launching our 100% participation campaign. We are asking the entire community to come together and support our school at whatever level you are able, whether you can give $20.21 or $202.10 or $2021. We know many families have been impacted economically by the pandemic, so we just ask that you give as you are able. 

Of course, even if you are not on Facebook, Giving Tuesday is still a wonderful time to support the school. Remember, if you know what you are planning to give for the year, a very effective way to give is to set up a recurring donation on a schedule you choose. 

Lastly, don’t forget: if your company has a matching gift program, please submit your donation to be matched. You can double and sometimes even triple the amount of your gift to the school. 

Thank you for your generosity this Giving Tuesday!!
