Berkshire School is committed to providing our students with outstanding faculty, 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.
The Annual Fund has a direct and immediate impact on life at Berkshire. Contributions go directly into the current operating budget, which supports not only the academic program, but also the athletic, arts, extracurricular and financial aid programs. From lab equipment to literary journals and field trips to hockey sticks, your support matters.
Gifts can be processed by credit card (online or over the phone), check, donating stock, wire transfer or through your company's matching gift program. All contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Check: Make checks payable to Berkshire School and indicate the appropriate fund in the memo section, then mail to:
