Friends of BLA Fall Fundraising Campaign

The Friends of BLA is a non-profit organization charged with raising money to fund Boston Latin Academy’s greatest financial needs.

Every November, the Friends of BLA asks the BLA community to make a tax-deductible donation to support the school and benefit each and every student. If each family contributes to BLA, in any amount, our students will benefit through enhanced technology and improved academic and extracurricular resources.

You can give securely through the Friends of BLA site on Razoo.com or you can use the payment envelope attached to your student’s report card.

Thank you in advance for supporting Boston Latin Academy.
