The BT Fund
The BT Fund is the name of Brownell Talbot’s annual giving program (formerly the Annual Sustaining Campaign and Parent Pride). This fund is the most important fundraising effort at Brownell Talbot. Making a gift to The BT Fund means supporting students, programs, faculty, and staff enrichment. Brownell Talbot is an independent school and as such, the education of every student is made possible by tuition and philanthropy.
The BT Fund is designed to cover the difference in tuition and the actual cost to educate a student at Brownell Talbot. This “gap” at BT is $3,500 per student.
