Boston Day and Evening Academy gratefully accepts support from individuals, foundations, corporations, partnering agencies, and state programs. We rely on donations so that we can continue to provide a relevant education and meaningful experiences for all our students.

Thanks to the many community members that partner with and support BDEA, our students receive an education that transcends activities that take place in the classroom, and helps them to become involved, invested, and active citizens in the community.

This year, we are asking our community supporters to please consider donating to one of the two options – please indicate in the comments at time of payment which you’d like to donate to!

BDEA Thankful Family Fundraiser – Goal: $7,500.00

Each year, Boston Day and Evening Academy (BDEA) hosts a Thankful Dinner for students, staff, and families. This has traditionally been a time to come together in person and share a meal while also giving away turkeys and full dinner kits to our families. It is always a meaningful and grounding community event. With the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still celebrating community – just a little more creatively again this year. Join us in supporting the second annual BDEA Thankful Family Fundraiser on Tuesday November 16, 2021. Our families are signing up now – and they will drive by the school to pick up turkeys, gift cards, and other prizes on November 16th between 4 and 6pm. 

This event is made possible through generous donations from staff, the BDEA Board of Trustees, and the wider Friends of BDEA community. Please donate towards our goal of $7,500 in support of 100 families this year. 

$1500: provides 20 families with a turkey and $50 gift card

$500: provides 20 different families with one turkey 

$300: provides four families with a turkey and $50 gift card

$150: provides two families with a turkey and $50 gift card

$25: provides a turkey to one family

General Fund – Goal: $100,000.00

BDEA provides a myriad of other services to students, from mental health counseling, to career readiness, to the arts. In the face of looming city budget cuts, we anticipate staffing reductions that will be enormously detrimental to our students. As an alternative school that serves students who are considered among the most marginalized in the city of Boston, we know that we cannot afford to compromise on our programs – it is our students who will pay the price. To that end, we ask you to consider donating to our General Operating Funds, which support staffing and infrastructure.

Thank you for caring and for committing to equity in education. YOU are our heroes!
