The BCS Alumni Family Association aims to foster a vibrant community of alumni families and friends of Bullis Charter School. The various programs are organized to serve families that do not have current BCS students, rather than individual graduating students with continuing siblings at BCS.
We currently offer two programs to families that do not currently have BCS students. The first offering is the Alumni and Friends Program and the second is the Leadership Circle Alumni and Friends Program. Should you wish to join either you may drop your donation in the Foundation box in the BCS office or mail it to: BPESF C/O Bullis Charter School, 102 W. Portola Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94022.
The Alumni and Friends Program is designed to keep as many alumni families as possible connected with each other and the BCS community. A modest annual donation of $60 will be required for membership to help cover operating costs. If you are interested in keeping in touch with alumni families, attending future alumni gatherings, and participating in Bullis Charter School events please contact Allison Atkins at email@example.com.
The Leadership Circle Alumni and Friends Program is for those extremely generous graduating families without current BCS students that are willing and able to make a donation for the coming school year of $2,000 or above. Such families will receive all the benefits of the basic program as well as the special benefits listed below. Leadership Alumni and Friends donations can be made in honor of the BCS Staff or a specific staff member. Such a donation is a wonderful way to send a clear message of appreciation for all they have done for your family. The Foundation will send a card to the Staff or staff member announcing your special gift.
Leadership Alumni and Friends donations will go to the BCS Endowment Fund and thereby provide long term financial support for our school. Leadership Alumni and Friends donors will be prominently listed on the Endowment section of the Foundation website. In addition, graduating families that make a Leadership Alumni and Friends donation of $2,000 or above by January 15, 2012 will qualify to attend our recognition Leadership Recognition dinner on February 4, 2012. And remember, if you are eligible for an employer match, any matching funds received will count towards the Leadership level!
We are working on other benefits for Alumni and Friends members and would love to hear your ideas. As this is a new program, we are very anxious to hear what our families would find most appealing. If you would like to get involved in helping us design the program, we would love to hear from you!

Thank you for being an important part of the BCS Community!
