Support Brighton

Bengal Fund

Be a part of the Brighton Legacy

Like most private schools, The Brighton School relies on gifts to the Bengal Fund to support the operating budget as it provides unrestricted gifts to our current year’s operational budget.

Each contribution, no matter the size, helps to support all areas of our school from academics, specialized therapy programs, professional development for our teachers, athletics, as well as financial aid.

This year, the focus of our Bengal Fund is to help complete the new lunch room, concession/serving area, and weight room in the new addition to the side of the gym.

Your Participation Counts!

Ways To Give
We appreciate contributions of all sizes; every gift counts!
Anyone can give to the Dyslexic Association of Greater Baton Rouge (DAGBR); parents, alumni, grandparents, current students, faculty, staff, friends, and you!

One Time Gift
Online, mail or text to give and help change a child’s life.

Monthly Giving
Monthly gifts of any size help children at Brighton. It’s easy to set up automatic donations from your checking account or credit card.

Matching Gifts
Double your gift, not your cost. Maximize your charitable gift to DAGBR/Brighton by using the benefit offered by many employers. Does your company offer a matching program? Check to see if your employer will match your gift to the Dyslexic Association of Greater Baton Rouge (DAGBR). We are a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible and always greatly appreciated.

Honorary/Memorial Giving
Honor someone special or remember a loved one with a gift to DAGBR/Brighton. The family/individual will receive correspondence of your generous remembrance in their name.

IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are 70 ½ years of age or older, an IRA Charitable Rollover gift can help you make a gift to DAGBR and reduce your tax liability.

Use Appreciated Assets, Not Cash
Donate appreciated assets, such as stock, directly to DAGBR without touching your cash. The stock’s appreciation may not be subject to capital gains taxes, thus increasing your donation while decreasing your tax liability.

Legacy Gifts
Naming the Dyslexic Association of Greater Baton Rouge or The Brighton School in your will or estate plan (in any amount) may be the largest impact you ever make toward the long-term financial health of Brighton while providing you with financial benefits.
