Find it in your hearts (and pockets!) to give some love to BLF!

Generous donations have allowed our school to build out an infrastructure that would have been impossible without them — 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. The money also enabled the school to buy iPads for an online reading program tailored to students’ 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 a writers-in-residence and artist-in-residence programs and enables the school to publish a literary magazine and newspaper.

Like many throughout our city, BAL teachers use Donors Choose to fill their classrooms with the necessary supplies and to help them carry out fundamental and valuable projects.  Be empowered to impact a classroom at the source.

Throughout the year, the Bronx Letters Foundation holds a number of events in support of our school.  

Our 16th annual Food for Thought Benefit will take place on Monday, April 16, 2018.

As in years past, a selection of New York City’s most talented chefs - including Andrew Carmellini (Bar Primi, Lafayette), Brooks Headley (Del Posto), Jim Meehan (PDT), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), Andy Ricker (Pok Pok), Marcus Samuelsson (The Red Rooster), and others - will prepare small bites and celebratory cocktails for this splendid occasion.  Attendees will be able to bid on a series of auction packages with past 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 will be 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!
