Project Details

What We Need
  • A compelling narrative, or set of stories
  • Persuasive copy that can be used in appeals to donors, annual reports, grant applications, and media relations
  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
Additional Details

As a small school BDA has many touching stories that we need to put to paper and be able to share with our various donors and stakeholders. We feel that this one area of storytelling will make a huge difference in fundraising, recruitment, and sustainability for our school. We need professional help in sharing our story in a compelling way.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a BDA volunteer manager, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have many students, parents, alumni, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to educate underserved students who otherwise may not be able to attend.

Being a relatively new and small school our goal is to broaden our reach and raise awareness of the unique school community that we have.

Our Mission

Many schools focus purely on academic achievement. While academic excellence is fundamental, we believe for a student to be truly successful in life, and have a sense of well-being, high quality education must not only provide academic rigor, but stimulate intellectual curiosity, teach good social and emotional skills and foster critical thinking.

BA has intentionally created an environment where each student feels valued, loved and affirmed. We want BA students to be known not only for their intellectual ability, but for their integrity, self-discipline, high moral value, commitment to equity and justice and to demonstrate kindness and mercy.
