Generous donations have allowed our school to build an infrastructure that would otherwise have been impossible — touching on everything from academics to sports to technology to the arts.
We can now afford to take every student from sixth through 11th grade on overnight college trips. Donations have also enabled the school to buy iPads for an online reading program tailored to student needs. Further, BAL was able to bring in mental health counseling using some of the funds and also buy violins — at the students’ behest — for a class where most students are learning to read music for the first time. The cash also helps cover writer-in-residence and artist-in-residence programs and enables the school to publish both a literary journal and a professional-quality magazine.

Throughout the year, the Bronx Letters Foundation holds a number of events in support of our school.
Our 17th annual Food for Thought Benefit took place on March 6, 2019.
Hosted by none other than renowned chef Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin), some of New York City’s most talented chefs - including Chef Morimoto (Momosan Ramen & Sake), Christina Tosi, (Momofuku Milk Bar), Gabrielle Hamilton (Prune), Christian Petroni (Fortuna) and others - prepared small bites and celebratory cocktails for this splendid occasion. Attendees were able to bid on a series of auction packages with offerings like a cooking class for six guests with Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune and lunch with food writer and former New York Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichl. During the evening, several Bronx Letters students were in attendance to share their experiences at the school and their plans for the future.
Please stay tuned for more information on this exciting and tasty event upcoming in the spring of 2020!
