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.
Berkshire's endowment is critical to sustaining the School's excellence in perpetuity. Income from endowed funds provides support for student scholarships, faculty chairs, programs, building operations and replacement, and other designations, freeing up essential operating funds.

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 to see if your company matches charitable donations and review the basics of their program.
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.
