Bronx Letters Foundation
The Bronx Letters Foundation is made up of a diverse group of professionals with varied backgrounds including education, finance, law, marketing, publishing, and philanthropy.
Our strictly volunteer Board raises funds to support extracurricular programming at The UA Bronx Academy of Letters. In addition to producing our annual Chefs’ Tasting Benefit and Fun(d) Run, board members are active volunteers at the school and participants in many school-sponsored events including Annual Student Exhibitions, College Essay Writing Night and the College Fair.
Through our efforts we provide the financial support for a school newspaper, a literary magazine, writing and acting residencies, SAT prep, and college visits. We offer a host of other extracurricular opportunities through partnerships with a variety of institutions, organizations, and companies in NYC and beyond. Together with the principal the foundation board decides which programs we can fund each year. We also support the school by researching grants and programs.
Thanks to donations from people like you,
we've been able to enrich our students' education in and outside of the classroom with initiatives, people and programs including the following, all of which cost $300,000* a year to maintain:
Art and Writing Enrichment
After-School Music Program
School Newspaper and Literary Journal
Overnight College Visits for ALL Grades
SAT Prep Classes
