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 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.
  • Last year’s average gift was $964.
  • Leadership giving begins at $1,000.

Serving Maine, The Seacoast of New Hampshire, and the North Shore of Massachusetts

Berwick Academy is Maine's oldest, independent Pre-K through Post Graduate private school. Our community is dynamic, offering challenging academics, competitive athletics, and creative arts programs. Members of the community operate within a context of caring and respect as we pursue our quest for "useful knowledge" as "one school with three divisions." Students and faculty are encouraged to expand their horizons by balancing academics with athletic, dramatic, and musical options.
