Preschool through IB Middle School

The BCD Fund

The Boulder Country Day’s Development Office plays a vital role in the life of the school. In partnership with the Head of School and the Board of Trustees, the office manages the BCD Fund, the annual Gala, and other community events and is also responsible for the school’s alumni relations programs. We work closely with many members of the school community – including faculty and staff, parents and alumni – to achieve our fundraising and program goals.
As an independent, non-profit institution, BCD has two primary sources of revenue: tuition and gift support. The school relies on gifts from its parents, faculty and staff, alumni and friends to ensure that all students have an opportunity to experience a BCD education, with much of this funding coming from monies raised through the Development Office’s three most significant annual programs: the BCD Fund, the annual Gala, and the Shields Fun Run.

The BCD Fund

The BCD Fund is the primary fundraising initiative for Boulder Country Day School. This fund allows BCD to respond to the needs and dreams of today while also planning responsibly for our future. The Fund has two primary purposes: people and strategic, long-term initiatives. It provides resources for people oriented programs and expenses that are in excess of the annual budget and strategic initiatives such as a technology sustainability fund. The BCD Fund empowers you to elevate our school’s excellence by funding outside of day-to-day operations. The BCD Fund is our way to take things above and beyond.
Christy and I make giving to BCD a priority because we value the great education that our boys receive. With tuition now fully covering the everyday operations of the school, we know that all of our donations go to making the already excellent program truly exceptional. The families who came before us made incredible contributions to create the great school we see today and we want to leave the school in an even better state for the families that will follow us.
