The Bronxville School Foundation Awards $646,000 in Grants

The Bronxville School Foundation announced its 2018 grant awards, giving $646,000 in resources to benefit children in kindergarten through 12th grade at The Bronxville School.


The Foundation grant requests came from teachers, administrators, parents, and students. This year’s grants continue to reflect the school’s work toward creating a sustainable model of excellence, aligned with the district’s goals of delivering the best possible curriculum and instruction, integrating new technologies, and providing improvements to school facilities and equipment that best support the current and future learning needs of students. After careful consideration from the grants committee and the board of directors, grants were awarded to all areas of the school.


“This year’s grants will enhance The Bronxville School by providing exciting new resources, training and technology to students, faculty, and administrators,” said Romy Coquillette, the Foundation’s vice president of grants.


Foundation Chair Jennifer Thomas added, “The Foundation is grateful to our donors for their generous and continued support. We also appreciate the teachers and administrators whose ideas, talent and energy bring important new programs, curriculum initiatives, technology, facilities and other resources to our children.  Together, we all make the Bronxville School a better place for our children.”


The Bronxville School Foundation has supported our school for 27 years. The Foundation’s fundraising had strong results this year: our community understands the important role the Foundation plays in enriching the school’s programs and providing a first-rate education for our children. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we raised over $469,000 all of these proceeds have been used to fund grants.


The Bronxville School Foundation depends upon contributions from school families and the community.
