Annual Fund: Banquet Pledges and Gifts
What does it mean to be Children of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32)? In this short video, BRCS student Jonathan Williams (Class of 2022) shares his perspective on how BRCS cultivates children of Issachar in our present generation. He also asks for your support. Our annual Stronger Together Banquet has been postponed to April 22, 2021, and all gifts and pledges will go toward that $75,000 goal. Thank you for ensuring that BRCS Thrives!
People: Scholarship Fund
Our first and foremost commitment is to our people: the students, teachers and families who are the heartbeat of our school. Many of our students are able to benefit from a BRCS education because of our scholarship fund. This year, the fund supports 40 families, representing 74 students. Gifts to our scholarship fund are truly life changing.
Places: Capital Improvements Fund
In August, we opened our high school at our new Dayton campus. Generous donors provided all the resources we needed to purchase the building debt free. Students and teachers are thriving in this beautiful new space. We are developing short and long-term capital improvement plans that will include targeted renovations of the Dayton (Upper School) and Bridgewater (Lower School) campuses. Our goal will be to preserve the best features of both places while enhancing and upgrading their functionality.
Programs: Annual Fund
BRCS offers programs that cultivate in our students an integrated life – one that is joyfully and intentionally integrated with scriptural truth. We see this lived out all aspects of our program: academics, the arts, and athletics. As we grow, the possibilities for God-honoring programs will multiply. We envision increased academic offerings in the sciences and the arts, enhanced library media centers at both campuses, greater leadership opportunities for students, impactful professional development for teachers, and expanded athletic programs and facilities.

Tax Credit Program
In addition to a 65% tax credit, individuals and businesses can also receive a deduction for a charitable contribution, and therefore achieve tax savings in two ways –
- For the year of the donation, the donor may take a deduction against net income as a charitable donation on both their federal and state income taxes. The tax reduction equals the contribution amount times the tax rate of the applicable tax (federal or state).
- For the year following the donation, the donor may take a credit against Virginia taxes. Tax reduction equals 65 percent of the amount of the donation. Credit is non-transferable. Credit may not exceed the tax liability but may be carried over for five succeeding years.
