Annual Appeal 2022

Our Annual Appeal — which extends through our entire fiscal year, January to December — provides vital support to BFS and its programs.

In 2022, we’re raising $17,000 from 170 contributors, and we hope that at least 17 of those donors will choose to make a monthly gift.

Track our progress on the disco balls, below!
