Recognition

When you give to Bear Creek, you become part of a community of donors united in supporting our school mission and impact in the world. Your gift is invaluable and provides our students with remarkable experiences and the educational foundation to lead lives of wisdom, compassion, and courage.

  • President's Circle celebrates leadership annual giving with a community of donors who give $1,000 or more during the fiscal year.
  • Fidelis Circle recognizes dedicated donors who give to Bear Creek every year for five or more consecutive years.
  • Bear Creek Legacy Circle recognizes supporters who have included a legacy gift to Bear Creek as part of their estate planning. Families who achieve 20+ years of consecutive giving are formally inducted as lifetime members.
