Blake Giving Week Surpasses 200 Donors, Unlocks $50,000
Last week the Blake community celebrated Blake Giving Week, highlighting the reasons donors give back to the school and the many ways philanthropic gifts transform the educational experience. Online and on all four campuses, the community pitched in and shared their reasons to give using #Blake1365 and #WhyIGive. On Friday, April 26, we surpassed a goal of 200 Annual Fund donors during the week and unlocked $50,000 for the Annual Fund.
Annual Fund gifts provide unrestricted operating funds to ensure students receive exceptional educational opportunities in every pursuit. The Annual Fund impacts every corner of Blake, from student financial assistance and faculty professional development to Blake’s 30+ student-led clubs and dozens of varsity sports.
Thanks in great part to previous donors coupled with the generosity during Blake Giving Week, the Annual Fund is on target to reach its $2.1 million goal this year. If you would like to support Blake’s Annual Fund, gifts for this fiscal year will be accepted through June 30. Learn more here.
