New Beginnings Family Academy receives $11,000 per pupil from the State, which is roughly 20% less than received by Bridgeport Public Schools. In order to make up the funding gap, NBFA has a small development staff that works to close the annual gap through individual gifts, corporate and foundation grants and major events. This fundraising arm has been working since the inception of the school, to raise funds for not only the annual operating budget, but also for special projects like repairing the roof and constructing a Pre-K Program – the latter of which cost $1.6 million in privately raised funds.
In addition to obtaining financial support, the development office facilitates volunteer management, coordinates in-kind donations, assists with recruitment efforts and works with the parent community to advocate statewide on behalf of their children.
