The generosity of alumnae and friends of Bayridge has allowed us to renovate all the living areas of the house. Our next big project is a complete overhaul of the lower level, which can only be accomplished with the support of people like you.


The Annual Fund consists of unrestricted gifts made to Bayridge by alums, parents, and other friends. These gifts are critically important to the residence and to its ability to carry out its mission. Gifts to the Annual Fund support a wide variety of ongoing activities. They provide resources for scholarships, emergency financial assistance, and programs that enhance the quality of student life.

Gifts to the Annual Fund provide flexible, immediate-use dollars. These resources are used at the discretion of the Bayridge staff to respond to immediate needs, or to pursue unexpected opportunities. You have shared in our past. Please consider investing in our future. Your tax-deductible gift will help us keep moving forward. Make a Gift today.
