Ways to Give

 

BFIS is a foundation and as many independent  private schools, BFIS relies on the philanthropic spirit of its community . It is thanks to the  contribution  of BFIS donors – no matter the size of the gift- that the school can develop initiatives not included  in the school’s ordinary operating budget that enrich the academic life of our students and faculty.

Every gift -no matter the size- to the BFIS´s Annual Fund makes an impact on the lives of BFIS students and teachers. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Making a donation is easy:

Credit Card

Matching Gift Program

One of the best ways to double your gift is by checking to see if your employer will match your gift, euro-for-euro. Arranging a corporate matching gift is an easy way to stretch your donation and increase the impact of your contributions to BFIS. By taking advantage of this special benefit—offered by many companies across the country—you can generate an additional gift that may double (or even triple!) your own contribution.

How it works:

Each company has its own guidelines for employees to follow, but most matches are initiated by a form submitted to BFIS by the donor. You can usually get this matching gift form from your employer’s Human Resources Office. Simply fill out the form and send it to BFIS (Business Office) with your gift. The gift and form will be verified by BFIS and returned to your company, who will then send the matching contribution to us. If you have any questions, please call us or visit us. 

Sharing your time

Giving doesn't always have to involve donating money, in fact, giving can occur in a multitude of ways.  As a school we are always in need of generous volunteers to donate their time year-round to plan trips, organize activities, provide classroom or program support, organize school plays, fun-fairs or helping in the libraries– the opportunities are endless! If you want to give to the school by sharing your time, please sign up in the link below
