To help support programs like these for BSI kids, there are many ways to fundraise.

More than 80% of our total fundraising dollars are from our direct appeal campaign. PLEASE DONATE NOW. 

Please keep in mind that while the PTO helps fund enrichments, the PTO does not administer the programs. Finally, please consider the list above as a guide only. The needs of the school may change.

If you would like to know specifics of the PTO budget, it is regularly reviewed at the monthly BSI PTO meetings or you can contact the exec board or the treasurer directly.
