Annual Fund donors play a crucial role in supporting each of our 1,365 students. We're highlighting how your gifts transform the Blake educational experience for all. What's your reason to give?
Increase Your Impact: Help Unlock $50,000 in Challenge Funds
A group of generous Blake donors have set up a challenge to strengthen classroom and co-curricular opportunities for our students. If 200 members of the Blake community give during the Blake Giving Week Challenge, we'll unlock $50,000 to the Annual Fund.
Parents: Step up for the Parent Division Competition
Which division will have the highest participation rate at the end of Blake Giving Week? Will it be Upper School, Middle School, Lower School Highcroft or Lower School Blake? Make your Annual Fund gift to help your division win the Parent Division Competition. All parents from the division with the highest parent participation at the end of the week will get a sneak peek at the new Blake Dining Commons before it opens in August.
If you have already made an Annual Fund gift this year, you are already counted. And if you have students in more than one division, your one gift gets counted in each division.

Alumni: Show your School Pride with the Alumni Decade Competition
Represent the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, or 10s and help your decade win the Alumni Decade Competition. Make your Annual Fund gift to raise your decade above the rest! The decade with the most Blake alumni donors at the end of Blake Giving Week will be crowned the winners and have full bragging rights as the top decade at Blake.
Be an Advocate
The success of this challenge will be very much dependent on advocates, community members who help build excitement by sharing the challenge with peers over social media and email and encouraging their network to join them in giving. Learn how to be an advocate here.
