Donate to The Bridge Academy
Why Give to The Bridge Academy?
Some 15-20 percent of the general population suffers from a language-based learning disability, according to the International Dyslexia Association. The mission of The Bridge Academy is to educate and empower students with learning disabilities to reach their fullest potential through a comprehensive program which is developed to support each child's individual needs.
Tuition covers only a portion of the costs of the curriculum at The Bridge Academy. We rely on donations from individuals, corporations and foundations to supplement this curriculum.
The Bridge Academy is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all contributions to the school are tax deductible as allowed by law.
What Would You Like to Contribute To?
Gifts of all sizes are very important to us. We appreciate your thoughtful interest in the school's welfare and progress. There are several opportunities available for donations.
The Annual Fund provides the school with resources to meet needs not funded by tuition; for example, to purchase new equipment, enhance technology, or to bring our curriculum alive by visiting museums, theatres, and other field trips. It also supports the “Build the Bridge” fund to support a move to a great new home for the school. For every $1 you donate during the school year, an anonymous donor will match your gift with $1, up to $15,000! Every gift counts and every gift is appreciated.

Building Bridges - We Need You!
Research consistently shows that students progress faster and achieve more when parents are involved in school. This is why we introduced The Building Bridges Program in 2004. At The Bridge Academy, we ask that all parents contribute a minimum of 8 hours to the school each year. We all know it takes the time and resources of all of us to make our school a continued success.
