2009-2010 Annual Fund Appeal

The 2009-2010 Annual Fund appeal is off to a great start with over $275,000 in commitments and gifts.  We started the year with a fantastic response from the faculty and staff with 98% participation.  That was followed by the annual Major Donor Dinner where over 50 families committed to lead gifts for this year’s campaign.

In October, the Annual Appeal letters went out to the rest of the BT community and we have already had 21% of our families respond.  Thank you to everyone who has committed.  The Annual Fund appeal helps to bridge the gap between tuition revenues and the cost to educate a student here at BT.  Last year this gap was $3,700 per student.  Giving is a personal decision.  A contribution in any amount would be appreciated and will impact our parent participation rate.  We ask that everyone consider a gift in an amount which would be significant and meaningful to you.   

YEAR-END TAX PLANNING - Did you know that your gift to the Annual Fund is tax deductable?  If you fund your pledge by December 31, you could significantly reduce your income taxes for 2009.  Gifts of cash, stock or life insurance could qualify.  You save taxes and help Blessed Trinity in our fundraising efforts.  

If you have questions, please contact Chuck Oliver, director of development, at 770-255-5125.
