Support BWL

The Birch Wathen Lenox School is a place where excellence and innovation combine in a nurturing environment where every student's voice matters. Children and young adults thrive while learning all aspects of a rigorous academic curriculum at a school that combines traditions with modern technology. None of this would be possible without the Lion Fund. 

The Lion Fund runs from July 1–June 30 each year, and all donations are tax deductible. Funds raised support all aspects of the current school year, from curricular supplies to faculty salaries to financial aid. We encourage you to make a gift at a level that is meaningful to you; your gift will make a difference!
