A very generous family wants our annual fund to meet if not exceed its goal. For exciting inspiration, they have offered a matching grant (up to $25,000) for any gifts given between now and the end of our fiscal year (June 30). If this is your first gift to the annual fund, your donation will be tripled. If you increase your gift from last year or give a second gift this year they will double that amount. As you know, the annual fund affects virtually every corner of school operations and helps close the gap between Bement's tuition and the actual cost of a year in our school. At the present time, we have raised $240,000 with $85,000 to reach our final goal. We can do this!

our 2012-2013 goal of $325,000.00 by making your online
