Why is my participation important?

The tradition of giving at Berwick is storied and strong. Each generation has played its part to ensure that future generations of talented students from the Seacoast are able to obtain an exceptional education from a premier institution. Donations are a vote of confidence in the School, a gesture of pride, and a continuation of the tradition of support and generosity.
The impact of your participation is valued beyond the dollars. At any level, participation in The Berwick Fund demonstrates your commitment to Berwick and its continued success. When the entire community participates, it speaks volumes that our parents, alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends are committed to the success of the School and will continue to teach or send their family to the School, thus ensuring Berwick’s sustainability for years to come. Foundations, grant-making institutions, and corporations all look at fundraising participation as their key indicator of buy-in. If the community stands behind the School, those organizations deem Berwick more deserving of their support as well.
The School’s overall and financial strength is dependent upon ALL members of the community. High participation generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join in celebrating and supporting the School. It makes a difference every day in every facet of our students’ experience.
