1.Why is fundraising important for nonprofit schools?

As a nonprofit association, our budget covers daily school expenses such as salaries and benefits, food, maintenance, school supplies and materials, and all expenses required for the school to operate with quality. Tuition and school fees alone are not enough to finance the Master Plan. That is why we need to fundraise. Fundraising is a way to generate an alternative source of revenue that will enable a major change in our structure and also enhance academic and learning processes. A common question arises: how much money will make a difference? Any amount can have an impact and this additional resource will accelerate our path to the future.

2. What is the EABH Future Program?

Similar to top schools around the world, we created the EABH Future Program to attract additional financial resources and investments through community participation at all levels. To better support our ever evolving and growing school, EABH has developed a Master Plan to further sustain its teaching and learning philosophy and ensure the best learning environment for many years to come. The EABH Future Program will support the expansion, renovation, and enhancement of our campus and infrastructure through the EABH Annual Fund and the EABH Future Campaign. The Board has pledged 100% participation. The EABH Future Program is one of the ways you can support our school and make a difference for generations to come!

3. What is the EABH Annual Fund?

The EABH Annual Fund is a fundraising effort that enhances learning at EABH through short-term projects. These projects are defined annually, and the funds raised will be applied during that same year.  The 2019 EABH Annual Fund will support projects to furnish and equip our school. Our Fundraising Goal for Year 1 is R$200,000. We hope you will join us in meeting our goals and improving our learning environment!

4. What is the EABH Future Campaign?

The EABH Future Campaign is an ongoing fundraising effort to support EABH’s vision and long-term projects. Funds will be directed towards the construction of the EABH Master Plan that consists of expanding and improving our school’s infrastructure. Funds will support the execution of Phase 1 of the Master Plan, which includes the construction of Bloco 1, and will feature 10 new learning spaces. The Fundraising Goal for the EABH Future Campaign from 2019 to 2021 is to raise 3 million reais in 3 years. Join us in making Phase 1 of our Master Plan a reality.

5. Why give?
