YOU CAN HELP STUDENTS LEARN TO READ AND SUCCEED!
Bodine School's life-changing work is sustained through the generosity and support of everyone in our community! If you interested in helping Bodine in any way, contact Michel Allen at 901.754.1800 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Below are just some of the ways that you can show your support.
Tributes and Honorariums:
Tribute gifts are a wonderful way for family and friends to honor a current or past student, faculty member, or other special person for a birthday, graduation, retirement, or any occasion. Honorariums of any type are a thoughtful way to acknowledge an accomplishment or honor a life. If you wish to make a gift in memory or in honor of a friend or family member, please complete a Donation Form. In addition to the acknowledgement letter sent to the donor, an announcement card will be mailed to the person or family being honored telling them a gift has been received in their honor.
Businesses and corporations are an important source of support for Bodine School.
- Grants, Donations, and Giving Campaigns: Many companies have employee directed grants, donations, or corporate driven foundations. Bodine School would be honored to be considered for your corporate giving programs and would be happy to provide any documentation or formal requests needed to initiate your donation. If you contribute to the United Way or another workplace giving campaign, in most cases you can designate Bodine School to receive all or a portion of your contribution even though we are not a United Way member agency; just write in Bodine School as your choice. Be sure to let us know if you have designated Bodine to receive your United Way contribution so we can track your gift and acknowledge your support.
- Sponsorships: Corporate sponsorships are needed for Bodine School’s annual auction and other events throughout the year. Sponsorship levels range from $500 to $15,000 and offer a variety of benefits and recognition for our sponsors.
- Matching Gifts: Does your company match employee donations to Bodine School? Would your company be interested in a “challenge” grant? Your offer to match all donations made to Bodine School within a given period of time will encourage new donors and double the impact of your own gift.
Donate to our Auction:
Our biggest event each year is the Bodine Bash, which includes a silent and live auction. Item donations for our annual auction are greatly appreciated!
