Bill and Kathryn Matthews Memorial Fund
Providing access to a high quality independent school experience can be life changing forstudents. Supporting middle- and low-incomefamilies is a challenge for almost any independentschool, where resources are often less abundantthan need. The Bill and Kathryn MatthewsMemorial Fund was established to help meet that need.
For the past three years alumnus, Dick Shafner ‘65,and his wife, Janet Eustis, have made gifts to support the full tuition of one Matthews Scholar eachacademic year. Students enter Berwick in Grade 4 and the scholarship will follow them until graduation.
