How much am I expected to give?

We simply ask that you give at a level where your passion for the School meets your ability to give. We understand that tuition is a significant investment and every family’s capacity for additional support is different. We just hope that Berwick becomes or remains a philanthropic priority. Gifts of ALL sizes help Berwick reach its financial and participation goals.
If you are interested in figures, please consider the following:
  • Regardless of financial aid, Berwick spends an additional $2,500 on average for every student, above the cost of tuition.
  • Gifts last year were as diverse as our community and ranged from $1 to $100,000.
  • Leadership giving begins at $1,000.
