The Annual Fund

BDEA leverages our Boston Public Schools Weighted Student Funding Formula (WSF), as well as Entitlement Funds and foundation and corporate dollars to cover our expense budget and maintain strong financial stability. In our most recently completed fiscal year (2023), 84% of our revenue came from Boston Public Schools. Each year we look to the community to help fill the “gap” between our BPS funding and the additional expenses we take on to ensure a low student:teacher ratio and robust social emotional supports for our students. Your contribution to the Annual Fund allows us to support each BDEA student to achieve academically and realize a vision for their future. To Donate to the Annual Fund please write “Annual Fund” in the comments during your payment process.

The Moment of Need Fund

BDEA welcomes restricted donations to purchase food, clothing and other urgent needs for our students.
