Campaign Update, May 11

Dear fellow Belmont Day parents, faculty, and staff,
At last Saturday evening’s Barn Raising, we were thrilled to kick off the RAISE Y[OUR] VOICE campaign for Belmont Day School. This campaign will support the construction of a new building on campus–The Barn–to be located next to the school’s tennis courts. 
The Barn will provide a much-needed and thoughtful addition to the campus, a multi-purpose building which will enhance academic and athletic programming for the entire school, from pre-k through eighth grade. This new facility will address critical challenges BDS faces, giving faculty and staff the space they need to teach our children unhindered by the limitations inherent in our present, beloved building. We truly believe this is the best next step for Belmont Day School and will meet the school’s needs for decades to come.
To date, donors have committed $4.6 million to the RAISE Y[OUR] VOICE campaign towards our goal of $8 million. In the coming months we will share additional updates and a member of the campaign team will reach out to talk with you about your support of the campaign. 
Our first update to share is that we are proud to announce that the Belmont Day School faculty and staff have already stepped up to support the campaign with 100% participation!
We are excited to be leading this campaign and to be partnering with you to reach our goal.
Brad Lewis & Margaret Wade
