The Badin Annual Fund is the cornerstone of all fundraising at Badin High School. Without it, Badin would struggle to survive. Tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student. This cost is much higher than what we can reasonably charge in tuition—and what Badin families can afford. The Badin Annual Fund helps fund this “tuition gap” so that the Badin tradition can continue as we profoundly shape the way students THINK ACHIEVE SERVE and LEAD.
This is why Badin depends on the Annual Fund each year.
The most significant contribution any of us can make to Badin is to the Annual Fund.
Make an Ongoing Difference by Becoming a Monthly Donor
Through the Badin Promise Monthly Giving Program, you can easily make your gift to the Badin Annual Fund in regular monthly installments from your credit card or checking/savings account.
Your monthly contribution provides Badin with an on-going, reliable source of funding. Gifts made through this program reduce our administrative costs and allow more of your gift to be used immediately to support Badin students.
Enrolling in the program means you won’t have to worry about writing and sending a check and will also decrease the number of phone and mail reminders you receive from Badin. A record of each gift will appear on your bank or credit card statements and you will receive an annual receipt from Badin in January.
Giving Made Easy: No hassle, no fuss—set up a reoccurring monthly deduction and we’ll do the rest. No pledge reminders, no checks, no stamps!
