Participation is the key to success for the Parents' Fund. Gifts, in any amount, create additional resources for the school and show support and enthusiasm for the education Berkshire provides. As a result, foundations, corporations and other funding organizations are excited to support schools whose own communities invest in their success and future.
Berkshire seeks support from its current parents and grandparents to sustain the quality education and experience available for Berkshire students. The cost of a Berkshire education (for a domestic boarding student) is well over $49,000, so tuition and fees alone do not cover all the expenses. The difference is made up from the endowment and gifts from parents and grandparents. Your support enriches the outstanding experience your child receives at Berkshire. Gifts from the Parents' Fund are used for field trips, the arts, competitive athletic programs, and speakers for special topics, and also helps create a diverse and international student body.
A gift directed to the Parents' Fund is an investment in your child and their future and helps Berkshire continue its mission of learning not just for school, but for life.
