What your gift can do
Together, Firsthand Fund gifts provide more than $2 million in support each year for
student scholarships and Berry’s premier work experience program. That
support enables a freshman to earn about $100 a week for an entry-level
job and a junior or senior to earn about $145 a week. Students’ need
for these wages continues to grow, as does the quality of Berry’s
premier work experience program. Firsthand fund gifts directly help to
keep a Berry education both accessible and exceptional!
Firsthand Fund gifts also support a wide range of activities that enrich student
life, covering such expenses as athletic team travel and equipment,
Forensic and College Bowl competitions, and many others.
matter the size, each gift is important in building the Berry College
experience for our students. EVERY Berry student benefits.
