Annual Fund

Every donation to the Annual Fund immediately impacts life at Berkshire. By making a gift—of any amount—you are investing in our mission and our community, and enhancing the educational experience for our students, faculty, and staff.

EVERY GIFT SUPPORTS A BERKSHIRE EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING THAT OF GILLIAN MAHER '21

"Being a Berkshire student means being able to celebrate others' success. Everyone here is so supportive of their peers and really reflects the idea of 'we before me.'"
-Gillian Maher '21

"As a member of the girls varsity hockey team, Gillian leads by example. She comes to the rink each day, whether it be practice or a game, and is prepared. Not once have we ever had to remind her to work harder.
Both on and off the ice, she adds a unique and kind dynamic to the team and is respected by her teammates and coaches, alike."

-Lisa Marshall, Girls Varsity Ice Hockey Coach
