PLEASE HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE - Donate
The Berkshire Hills Fund for Excellence wants to have an even greater impact on the student population of the Berkshire Hills Regional School District. With the help of your tax-deductible donation, we can engage over 500 students per year in creative, engaging projects that expand horizons and pique curiosities. Without your donation, students will lose access to these innovative programs that fall outside the scope of the normal school budget.
