The Annual Campaign

Why Support the Annual Campaign?

In order to sustain a high-level, supportive learning environment, Bala House engages in annual fundraising efforts. Each fall, Bala House asks parents, staff, trustees, alumni families, friends, and businesses to invest in our school’s success and share in the excitement as we continue to expand the educational gifts we give our students. Annual giving is an opportunity to demonstrate your recognition of Bala House’s values, philosophy, and contribution to your child’s life. Your gift of any size will help sustain this momentum and leave a legacy for future generations of Bala House students. Monies raised go to tuition assistance for deserving families, facility improvements (such as the new playground sunshade which will be installed in early 2023), and faculty and staff professional development.

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) for businesses has expanded to include individual tax savings through the Special Purpose Entity (SPE) program.


Stock Transfer

A gift of appreciated securities, held for more than one year, may provide a more significant tax advantage than a cash gift. You avoid capital gains on the appreciation and receive a tax deduction for the stock’s fair market value. The value of the securities is the average from the high and low trading prices on the day your gift is transferred to Bala House.

The Pink Tower is an iconic Montessori material that teaches fine motor coordination, visual perception and awareness of size and dimension.


Corporate Matching Gift Programs

If you or your spouse work for a company that matches charitable gifts to independent schools, the impact of your contribution can be doubled or even tripled. Ask your employer’s Human Resources department if they offer matching gifts. Return your company’s form along with your donation to Bala House.
