|Beauvoir was given as a gift to the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation early in the last century. The former 19th century estate then became Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School. The legacy of this important gift profoundly impacted the lives of thousands of children and their families over the last seven decades. |
The history of generosity and voluntary giving by the Beauvoir community continues to make Beauvoir a success story, focusing all of our resources on the education of young children. Educating a child requires more than a great faculty and curriculum. Beauvoir relies on the support and involvement of our entire community-- including current and past parents, alumni, grandparents and friends.
Help us plant the seeds of education for future generations!
|This year, 2012-13, Beauvoir is engaged in two principal fundraising efforts, in addition to the Auction:|
The 2012-13 Annual Giving Fund seeks to raise $732,000 in unrestricted support for the operating budget. Amounting to almost $2,000 for each student, the Annual Fund forms a crucial component of Beauvoir's operating budget.
The Beauvoir Outdoors Campaign, with a $6 million goal, was launched publicly at the end of April with its groundbreaking for the new playground. The work completed to date represents Phase 1 of a total project to include terraces and gardens at the back of the building. To date, more than $4 million has been raised from the Governing Board, faculty and some 25 parent families. The goal is to raise the final $2 million by June 30, 2013 from the remaining current parent families,together with alumni, former parents and grandparents.
The Scholarship Auction is held each spring and all money raised goes directly into the Beauvoir Scholarship Fund. This event is planned entirely by a dedicated team of parents and is supported by the School. During the past 35 years, nearly $5 million was raised for Scholarship entirely through the annual Auction. This event allows Beauvoir to remain accessible to every family, no matter their income.
