Viking Fund

A Gift to the Viking Fund, Parent Fund or Grandparent Fund provides Broadwater Academy with critically needed flexible resources.  Covering 5% percent of the annual budget, these annual giving funds support Broadwater’s ongoing priorities. Gifts go to work right away and are directed to the highest priorities. Gifts create opportunities for learning and discovery, provide scholarships for students who need them, and give Broadwater the flexibility to respond to unanticipated needs and challenges.  All annual fund donors are recognized in our Annual Report.

A gift of $5,000 that can be spent immediately has the same impact in a single year as a $100,000 endowment gift.  Year after year, the Annual Fund not only sustains Broadwater, but also helps it to thrive.

Last year, Annual Fund gifts allowed us to pay for the band program, a new English Language Arts initiative, and materials for Social Studies and Foreign Languages. Costs were covered for our students to compete in Middle and Upper School Robotics Competitions. Annual Fund contributions also paid for athletics, including league dues so our student/athletes can participate in Metro Conference and state tournaments, hiring of umpires and officials, and the purchase of new volleyballs, baseballs, football helmets and other equipment.

For the 2019-20 school year, your gift will allow Broadwater to:

  • Invest in faculty and support professional development for teachers
  • Update materials in mathematics
  • Support experiential learning like engineering, robotics, and technology
  • Participate in academic competitions
  • Support our athletes
