Investing in Our Future

Long-term stability depends on investments from our community. Through our Believe in Bertschi campaign, we're safeguarding the school's continued growth and evolution - and we need your help.


Look Forward, Give Back

An endowment gift is an investment in the future of Bertschi School - an affirmation of the timeless value of a Bertschi education. 

Permanent funding is critical to advancing our school's mission and sustaining growth. Your principal gift to the endowment is never spent; instead it is invested and earns interest for the school in perpetuity.

Endowments continue to give back for as long as the school exists.



 
 

General Endowment

 
This fund directly impacts student learning experiences by providing critical funding for the continued enhancement of our educational program and campus. These funds are unrestricted in use and give the school maximum flexibility to meet a range of future needs.

 

 

Brigitte Bertschi
​Financial Aid Endowment


Established in 2004, this fund honors and expands our founder's commitment to Bertschi's socio-economic diversity. Financial Aid packages cover 100 percent of a family's demonstrated need for tuition, extended day, and Learning Services.


 

Sarah M. Hughes
Memorial Endowment


Named after a beloved Bertschi student, this memorial fund provides the school with financial aid funds to support the children of Bertschi faculty and staff.
"As a teacher, children are my life's passion. Being able to witness my own children learn and grow in the Bertschi community is a blessing that will last the rest of our lives."
- Jill Corsi, Bertschi Teacher and Parent


 
 

Faculty Compensation Endowment 

 
This donor established fund allows Bertschi to sustain top-quartile faculty compensation, reducing the burden that higher salaries place on tuition. It is just one of many ways to help us attract and retain the very best teachers for our students.

 
 

Professional

Development Endowment

 
The two greatest factors impacting the students' academic success are the quality of their teachers and a supportive learning community. The very best teachers - those who instill a love of learning and create a caring environment - are themselves continually learning innovative, effective ways to engage and educate students.

 

Access Ability Endowment Fund
 

This fund honors Bertschi’s commitment to promoting an equitable, just, and inclusive environment. Funding will ensure that all members of the school community have physical and sensory access to classrooms and buildings, and will provide for programming that educates and informs the community on issues of universal access. Providing physical access to and within the campus will allow Bertschi School to continue to affirm our commitment to serve all members of the community.
