WHY GIVE?

Making an Impact

Bynum School nurtures a community for often overlooked students and provides them with educational opportunities to be successful today and beyond. Rather than focusing on disabilities, Bynum School emphasizes abilities. Donors are welcome and encouraged to see how their gift impacts our students in person by visiting our campus.

Annual Gifts

Bynum School encourages all parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, board members, faculty, staff, and friends to contribute to our school's annual fund. Approximately 30% of Bynum School's operating budget is covered by tuition. The school's yearly gifts bridge the gap between tuition dollars, funds from grants, and fundraising events. Gifts to the annual fund are unrestricted and support our students in tangible ways. Our goal is to achieve 100% parent participation.

Endowment Fund 

Bynum School's endowment fund provides sustainability in perpetuity. Endowment funds are invested to maximize the return on investment for donors. Bynum School can ensure its future through endowment donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations. It is our pleasure to accept contributions and planned gifts in the form of:
 

  • Cash or receivable income

  • Appreciated stock

  • Retirement accounts

  • Real estate

  • Oil & gas interests

  • Life insurance

  • ​Charitable trusts
