Building Blue Mountain

At Blue Mountain School, we are cultivating capable community members who possess the courage and wisdom to lead fulfilling lives!

And we have more of those young community members enrolled than ever before! As Floyd and neighboring counties continue to grow, so does our student body. Our facilities are stretched to their limits, and it's time for us to Build Blue Mountain.

The Community Educational Resource Coailition (CERC) and other Blue Mountain School supporters have agreed to match dollar-for-dollar your donations on Give Big Day up to $5,000, so please Give Big on April 18!

(Ask us about how you can get 65% of your donation back at tax time.)



How Will Your Donation Help the New River Valley?
 
Each year, over 200 children from all over the New River Valley and beyond participate in programs at Blue Mountain School! In addition to our preschool through seventh grade classes, families also choose to bring their children to BMS for Summer Camp and Forest Kindergarten, and we hope to continue to grow our programing to include even more friends!

Your donation on Give Big NRV Day will help us to expand our classroom, enrichment, and community spaces, which will allow more children, families, and community members to be part of Blue Mountain's contemplative progressive education.



What Will the New Building Look Like?

That's a great question, and we have a dedicated group of volunteers and professionals working hard to answer it!

We do know that there will be a large multipurpose room where our Yoga, Art, Contemplative Studies, and Drama teachers will be able to stretch out. This space will also allow us to welcome more community members to our celebrations, and it will be open for after school activities, club meetings, dance classes and other activities the community is interested in. Our wish list also includes additional classrooms, a community kitchen, new office space, and a teacher resource library.

Of course, our students are brainstorming, too! We've received extensive lists that include a science lab, climbing gym, movie theater, pet store, ballet studio, and ice cream volcano, to name just a few.



Double Your Donation -- Or Increase It Sixfold!

The Community Educational Resource Coailition (CERC) and other Blue Mountain School supporters have agreed to match dollar-for-dollar your donations on Give Big Day up to $5,000!

And if you donate at least $500 (or $615 for a business), you are eligible for a 65% Virginia State tax credit. That means your donation of $500 would only cost you $175, while contributing $1,000 to Blue Mountain School!



Thank You!

With your help, the BMS Building Fund already has over $10,000 saved. We appreciate the generosity of our students, families, staff, trustees, and community for your continuing support!
