There are many additional ways in which you can give and support Brooks DeBartolo. We encourage not only our BDCHS families to get involved, but also grandparents, neighbors, friends, alumni, and the community. Please see below for additional ways in which to give.
SignUpGenius – Volunteerism – BDCHS welcomes gifts of time in the form of volunteering to help out in a variety of ways. All volunteer needs are communicated via SignUpGenius. To sign-up to receive these communications and/or to receive more information about volunteer opportunities, please email our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Matching Gifts – Gifts may be eligible for a matching gift from an employer. There are many companies and businesses that offer matching gift programs to their employees, encouraging them to make contributions to charitable organizations; most matching dollar for dollar or even more! Others may provide financial support to an organization based on volunteer hours by an employee given to that organization.
