Support Bethesda

Annual Giving

Generosity has shaped Bethesda’s success for nearly three centuries. We are grateful for the support from generous individuals and companies who have selflessly supported Bethesda.

Today, with a combination of an endowment, GOAL Scholarship contributions, annual fund donations and special event fundraisers, Bethesda Academy provides financial assistance for over 90% of our students.

We are proud that we are able to offer the Bethesda Academy experience to a socially and economically diverse population. It is because of Bethesda’s generous supporters that we have the ability to award financial aid to so many families.

Annual Fund

A donation to the Annual Fund provides Bethesda Academy the opportunity to apply your donation to areas of greatest need or most immediate need. You can donate to the general fund or to our Gateway Scholarship Program.

Lead the Way

Lead the Way is the name of Bethesda’s strategic plan, adopted by the Board of Governors in 2015.  In order to help implement the plan, the David Tribble President’s Fund has been established.  Named for Bethesda’s longtime President, Dr. T. David Tribble, the President’s Fund will be used to launch the initiatives that will define Bethesda Academy as a place of Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Sustainability.

Giving Bethesda Academy

Whether through a memorial gift for a friend or loved one, or an honorarium of birthdays or anniversaries of special people in your life, donating to Bethesda on behalf of another is a wonderful way to make a difference in the lives of our students.


“If it wasn’t for Bethesda, I would not be the individual that I am today. To these people standing around me and behind me right now – from my senior class to my teachers – thank you. I am completely humbled right now.”
– Roemello Stokes, Class of 2013

Thank you for supporting the mission, vision, and students of Bethesda Academy!
