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 Berwick in addition to The Berwick Fund, and we appreciate participation in all of them. However, the School formally asks that you give to The Berwick 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, programs and technology, financial aid, and arts and athletics. Additionally, The Berwick 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.
