Woo hoo! Many, many thanks to those of you who heeded the call to give to the Berkeley High School Development Group. After you heard that several generous families were issuing a challenge grant of $20,000, you stepped up and gave a combined total of $14,500! But there are just a few more days to go, and we need to make it all the way up to $20,000; don't let those matching donations get away! We're extending our deadline to Sunday, May 15th to make sure that our school community doesn't miss out on any of those generous gifts.


Perhaps you're wondering what BHSDG does with the money? Scores of important items benefitting ALL of our students and school community, including:

  *   Free after-school tutoring in dozens of subjects, for all students, school year-round
  *   Free PSAT testing for every Sophomore
  *   Free BHS daily planners for every student to help them master time management
  *   College/Career Center support, including new computers and the annual College Fair
  *   Student projects such as the new 'zine
  *   Classroom mini-grants for all teachers and key staff
  *   College application fees and scholarships for students in need
  *   Field trips
  *   Science, technology, and arts supplies and equipment, including new computers for the Jacket
  *   Substance abuse prevention education, and much, much more!

To all of you who have donated so generously already this year, thank you, thank you, thank you! For those of you who have been meaning to give, now is the perfect opportunity. No donation is too large or too small; our goal is 100% participation, because the more we give back to our school community, the better it is for all of our students.

Please make your donation TODAY at www.bhsdg.org<http://www.bhsdg.org>.

(Now the fine print: Yes, you can make a targeted gift to a program or small school, and your gift will be matched. However, the match will be to our general, unrestricted fund, so that we can maximize providing funding for programs throughout the entire school.)
