2021-22 Donor Report
The 2019-2020 academic year was full of excitement and celebration, but was also incredibly unusual as we faced unprecedented challenges during a global pandemic. Fortunately, the Bernard Zell community is unlike any other and finds ways to come together and support each other no matter the circumstances! 
We are pleased to share that last year, we raised over $1.2 million for the Annual Campaign! Thanks to all of our donors who generously supported our school, we have been able to adapt to new guidelines and protocols to safely welcome our students and faculty back to campus for in-person learning. To recognize all that our donors have done for our community, we are sharing with you our 2019-2020 Donor Roll below.
