The significance of the Annual Fund to Berkshire Country Day School’s success cannot be overstated. As with all independent schools and universities, the Annual Fund provides critical support of the School’s yearly operating budget. Currently, tuition covers approximately 90% of the required revenue to sustain the school. BCD relies on the Annual Fund along with endowment income and auxiliary income to fund the rest.
The Annual Fund supports every moment of every child’s BCD education, every day. Moments like a preschooler’s explanation of the anatomy of a butterfly, a fourth grader’s debate with a grandparent about the causes of the Civil War, or a ninth grader’s triumphant win in the Oral Interpretation Contest at Classic’s Day are not essential to an education, but they are central to the BCD experience. Your gift makes it possible for BCD to inspire the individual promise of every student, that each may become an exemplary citizen of the world.
BCD is a tax-exempt section 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. For more information, call the Development Office at (413) 637-0755 x122.
