We rely on our Buen Dia family to keep the school thriving

Buen Dia is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational, cultural, community-based organization. All contributions are tax deductible.

We are embarking on our Uniquely Buen Dia special initiative. This initiative will strengthen our capacity to meet our mission. 

The Uniquely Buen Dia Initiative will:

  • Continue to impact an economically diverse group of families with quality childcare.

  • Provide healthcare and retirement benefits to our staff.

  • Develop a capital building plan for building repairs and upgrades.

  • Provide high quality educational materials

Our goal is to keep our tuition affordable and philanthropic investment provides a critical link in this process.



The Buen Dia Family School depends on individual philanthropic investment to run our school. Below, you'll find several ways to give:

  • Make a recurring monthly gift

  • Select an amount for a one-time gift

  • Mail us a check or money order

  • Give Stock or Securities

However you choose to give, we thank you for your continued support!
