Dear Alumni Community,
On June 9, 2016 the Board of Trustees of the Alumni Association of the Bronx High School of Science voted to conditionally accept a proposal from the organization formerly known as The Bronx High School of Science Endowment Fund, Inc. to have the combined functions of the two organizations performed by one. This Proposal included formally dissolving the Alumni Association and having its assets, liabilities, and functions assumed by the Endowment Fund, which has been renamed the Bronx Science Alumni Foundation, Inc.
The final decision on whether to dissolve the Alumni Association and move forward with the Proposal was subject to a vote by the members of the Alumni Association. Voting on the question was open to the membership from 9 AM EST February 17 to 11:59 PM EST February 27, 2017. The membership voted in favor of dissolution.
Based on the foregoing, the Board of Trustees will proceed to implement the dissolution of the Association and to finalize the arrangements with the Alumni Foundation that were tentatively approved at the meeting of the Board of Trustees on June 9, 2016.
Thank you to all our members who participated in the voting. We are confident that combining the functions of the Alumni Association with the Bronx Science Alumni Foundation will allow us to do even more for our alumni and for our school. The benefits of joining forces include everything from greater mission focus to increased funding for alumni programs and school priorities as well as leveraging economies of scale for our operational expenses.
Chairperson of the Board of Trustees
