Parents' Fund

What is the Parents' Fund?

Berkshire's Parents' Fund, a portion of the Annual Fund, is a yearly fundraising effort that seeks gifts from the parents of current students. The Fund is led by a group of volunteer families who dedicate their time to helping ensure a first-rate experience for every Berkshire student. Parents' Fund dollars directly support our students in so many ways: from musical instruments to new uniforms, from lab equipment to literary journals, and from field trips to hockey sticks. There's no better way to help contribute to your child's everyday experience than to show your support with participation in the Parents' Fund!

Parents' Committee Co-Chairs 2016-2017:
  • Randy and Sheryl Appleyard P'18, '20
  • Ken and Pam Gammill P'16, '20
  • Jim and Nancy Wilson P'17
