You can decide how your gift will support the Baldwin Experience by donating to an area of your choice:
The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is an organized effort of securing yearly ongoing support for the school through financial donations received from all constituencies: alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, trustees, foundations, corporations, and friends, who benefit from the overall growth of the school. In short, an annual fund represents the margin of excellence at any independent school.
This Fund helps Baldwin provide more opportunities to enhance what is already being offered in our school program. Even gifts of very modest sizes enable our school to provide students with the tools to be successful now and in the future. We want to go beyond what our annual budget allows.
Your gift to the Annual Fund ensures that Baldwin School of Puerto Rico remains a world-class independent school; and that we continue to grow to meet the needs of the students of a new century. Your unrestricted donation helps us maintain a high quality educational experience for our children throughout the ever-changing economic stability of our island.
In 1998, Baldwin School established a Scholarship Program to provide talented, deserving students with limited financial resources the opportunity to maximize their potential through the promise of a better future. Many years later, our program continues to thrive, and today several students are taking advantage of the opportunities that a Baldwin education can provide. Since the program's inception, we have graduated several students from the program. The Annual Golf Escapade Tournament is a yearly event to benefit our scholarship students. Baldwin School sponsors, collaborators, and friends support the Scholarship Program by way of this event. We also welcome direct donations to the Scholarship Program for those who may not wish to participate in the Golf Escapade.
The Advancement and Development Office, which handles all alumni affairs, stays in contact with the alumni community and maintains the presence of the Alumni Association in Baldwin related events. Annual Alumni contributions help to make it all work. Contributions are not mandatory, but they help cover alumni activities, expenses to solidify the association (birthday program, reunions, seniors programs, communication programs, etc.), and contribute to the expansion and support of school organizations and programs within Baldwin School.
The suggested contribution for all alumni is $30.00. You don’t need to limit yourself. If you are able, you can also make an unrestricted donation in the amount of your choice to the Alumni Association. This additional contribution gives extra income to continue expanding the outreach programs that benefit our alumni community as well as other school programs.
Please join our Alumni Connect social platform, where you can keep in touch with classmates and alumni news. This will insure that we can always let you know about important activities and alumni events.
The Capital Campaign
The Baldwin Capital Campaign is devoted to the construction of The Innovation Center and all new campus libraries.
The Innovation Center will include a sciences complex with college-grade chemistry, biology, and engineering laboratories. Interior glass, solar tubes, and automated LEDs will ensure a bright, modern feel in a LEED-certified building. Additionally, there will be a large display area for completed IB projects, a climate-controlled greenhouse, a fabrication workshop, and a project yard with a 500-gallon research tank. The second floor will provide a large modern Middle and Upper School library, individual and small group study areas, and a number of specialized classrooms for multimedia, science, mathematics, and language acquisition. Finally, this building will feature a new nurses station and additional bathrooms.
The completion of the Innovation Center will allow for a full redesign of our current library. All existing library space will be remodeled, and re-tasked exclusively for OECC and Elementary students. You can expect an innovative design concept that will integrate traditional library features with creative new approaches. The new library will inspire the imagination of our children and support literacy across multiple languages.
Similarly, we want to inspire our budding scientists, computer scientists, and engineers to follow their creative instincts. The Innovation Center will ensure our students the space, tools, and resources to design, build, and test original prototypes in software and engineering. The engineering lab and fabrication workshop will remain open to our students after normal school hours, just as our athletic and arts spaces are currently.
Upon completion of this capital campaign, in conjunction with the implementation of IB, we will be a world-class institution without peer in the Caribbean.
The Summer Institute for Public School Teachers and Students
You can support professional development opportunities for public school teachers and academic enhancement for 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade public school students.
Over the last few years, a team of Baldwin educators has worked to affect change in our public educational system. We launched the “Instituto de Verano” (The Summer Institute) in 2014. Our formula for change has two parts: professional development for teachers and instructional interventions for students. We partner with a number of public elementary schools within the area, and invite both teachers and students from these institutions to participate.
We believe that education is the great equalizer. We are hereby resolved to act, to work to make a difference, because all kids deserve a fighting chance.
Matching Gift Program
A Matching gift is when a contribution by a donor is matched dollar for dollar by another donor or institution. Many corporations have matching gift programs to encourage their employees to give to their favorite entities and / or charities. Each company establishes its own rules and regulations regarding matching gifts to employees. Find out if your company has a Matching Gift program and request information on the procedure to enable a matching gift to Baldwin School.
Baldwin School is a not for profit, public good corporation, which means your gift is deductible to the extent allowed by Puerto Rico tax law. No gift is too big or too small...every gift matters.
