There are so many ways to support Brownell Talbot! We are grateful for gifts of time, talent, and treasure. The Office of Advancement is ready to help you navigate how your support and generosity can best impact the school.
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, and 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. The gap at BT is $3,500 per student. Thirty percent of our students are provided with tuition assistance. One hundred percent of Brownell Talbot faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees make a gift to The BT Fund.
Capital & Endowment Giving
Capital campaigns are time-limited efforts proposed by the Board of Trustees for a specific need, such as construction of campus facilities or building the endowment. Growing the endowment is currently the school’s top capital fundraising priority. Gifts to the endowment can be discussed with the Office of Advancement at 402.556.3772.
Planned giving encompasses a variety of philanthropic strategies that help you plan your support for Brownell Talbot. Choosing the right method and timing of your gift can increase tax savings and reduce the net costs of the contribution.
The following is a brief description outlining some of the prevalent charitable contribution methods available to donors. Please consult with your tax advisor or call the Office of Advancement with specific questions.
