This spring, Tocci contributed to BTA’s Scholarship fundraiser, which sought to raise $200,000 in 16 hours to support tuition aid for its students.
BTA’s mission “to learn with passion to live with purpose” creates an exciting learning environment for its diverse student population. Offering a rigorous academic and challenging civic curriculum is possible because over 60% of the students receive $1.8 Million in financial aid. With families struggling to pay tuition and charitable events canceled due to Covid-19, extra fundraising efforts were needed to continue their mission to end educational inequities for inner city students.
John Tocci, on the board of BTA has supported its mission for more than a decade, and was pleased to help this pressing initiative by offering a dollar for dollar $10,000 match until the close of Giving Day. Thanks to the generous donations, matches, and sponsors, the BTA well-surpassed their initial goal, raising $371,892 for their Scholarship Fund.
