GIVING OPTIONS

Berkshire School is committed to providing our students with outstanding programs and facilities on every level, from the traditional to the cutting edge.  In order to maintain our current success and stay ahead of new trends, we rely on the generosity and support of thousands of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents and friends to supplement tuition revenue and endowment income.

There are many areas in which your gift can positively impact Berkshire today.  Please browse through the options below to see which is right for you. 

Hail Berkshire, the Second Century Campaign, is our most ambitious fundraising effort and will preserve and advance our standing as one of the nation’s finest secondary schools.   With emphasis on three strategic areas – recruiting and retaining a talented and diverse faculty (the Twiggs Myers Fund), building the financial aid endowment for its students, and providing first-rate facilities and programs, the campaign has a goal of $200 million. For more information, visit the Capital Campaign page. To give directly, click here.

The Annual Fund helps pay yearly operating budget costs which are not covered by tuition revenue and endowment income alone. For more information, visit the Annual Fund page or contact Meg MacClarence, Director of Annual Giving.

Endowment Funds provide perpetual income for the School's operating budget in a wide range of areas, from student scholarships and faculty salaries to student activities and campus beautification.  To see a complete list of endowed funds and prizes, please visit Endowed Funds or Endowed Prizes.

Matching Gifts supplement a donor's gift by providing funds from the donor's employer. These gifts can double or even triple a donor's contribution to the School.  Ask your employer about matching gift options, or check our CASE link to see if your company matches charitable donations and review the basics of their program.

Planned Giving allows donors to make gifts through wills, estates, bequests, trusts and other estate planning vehicles.  For more information, visit the Planned Giving page.
