Celebrating our 25th Year

With your help, we ended 2023 with great celebration. We are all blown away by the generosity of our community. Together, we surpassed our 2023 Annual Fund goal of $62,500, raising more than $72,000 for Bridges’ students.  

Launched each fall, Bridges’ Annual Fund is dedicated to helping cover the school’s most basic costs. Funds raised are spent in the same school year, so students benefit immediately. They help cover the cost of teacher salaries, building infrastructure, curriculum development, and financial aid. For Bridges, these costs are essential, and they come every year. 

The Annual Fund helps keep tuition manageable for all students, but for the thirty percent on financial aid, it represents access and opportunity that they could not otherwise afford. The students at Bridges will benefit greatly from your contribution—contributions such as yours make an incredible difference in what’s available to our students.  

Thank you for helping us give Bridges’ students the foundation they deserve. Yourgift is truly appreciated by all of us here at Bridges Middle School.

As we jump right into 2024, we are all excited for our community to come together in person this Spring as we celebrate 25 amazing years of Bridges Middle School. Bridges’ 2024 Auction Gala – 25th Anniversary Prom Edition – at Castaway Portland on April 13, 2024, is going to be an incredible celebration! We will be sending all the exciting details soon. In the meantime, you can learn more here.  

With many thanks for your generous support.
