I give at the auction and/or support the Golf Tournament. Why should I also give to The Berwick Fund?

We recognize that there are opportunities to support the Berwick in addition to The Berwick Fund, and we appreciate your participation in all of them. However, the School formally asks that you give to the Annual Fund first. It is the most critical funding need and allows the School to continue to achieve its mission and vision – the foundation for the Berwick experience. There are seven designations within The Berwick Fund that impact all aspects of our School, so give to the one you feel most passionately about.
School fundraising events are important in providing supplemental funding for expenses outside of the operating budget - the “nice to haves.” The Berwick Fund is the School’s only fundraising effort that covers the “need to haves” - faculty support, programs and technology, financial aid, and arts and athletics. Additionally, the Annual Fund is 100% tax-deductible.  We hope that you participate in special events such as the Community Benefit and/or the Athletic Boosters Golf event, but we ask that you make giving to The Berwick Fund your first priority.

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.
