Business Sponsorship Opportunities


Would you like to make a tax-deductible contribution to a diverse and thriving local, public school?

Would you like to give your business exposure at our school and in the community?

Healthy schools are the backbone of healthy communities; they bring higher property values, new families, and a sense of pride to the neighborhood. Alice Birney Elementary has experienced a dramatic turnaround over the past decade due in large part to our International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. Our IB program helped double our enrollment, achieve excellent test scores, and attract students and families from outside our district.

Severe budget cuts threaten Birney’s ability to offer classes which are integral to our IB accreditation. Our goal this year is to raise over $126,000 to support the IB program.

But we can’t do it alone! We are seeking community members to support our school by contributing via financial or in-kind donations. We are hosting a variety of events this year – some are free and open to the community – for which we need a variety of silent auction items and prizes (i.e., gift cards, merchandise, vouchers).

Your support at any level is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Thank you for making a donation to support a healthy community and a stronger future!

“Since I have been a Birney Bee, I have gotten stronger, smarter, and better.”

“We are grateful for the things that other people give us.”

“Because the teachers don’t give up, we never give up on ourselves. We have empathy so we care for others.”
