Business Partners

The BHSDG Business Partners include local and national businesses with an interest in Berkeley and an appreciation that Berkeley High School is the only public high school in our community. The Business Partners’ goal is to raise significant funds for the BHSDG from the local business community.

Supporting Our Community

Berkeley businesses rely on BHS for the education of our children and/or our employees’ children. BHS provides customers and potential employees and is an important component for maintaining the quality of life and the value of Berkeley residence.

Business Partners Luncheon

The BHSDG Business Partners brings together local business people and national business representatives to support Berkeley High School. The fifth annual luncheon was held in October 2015 at Revival Restaurant with delicious offerings, outstanding service, and wine donated by Stomping Girl Winery. Berkeley High teacher Kimberley D’Adamo spoke about keys way the Development Group’s support enables students to prepare for college and also shared beautiful student art from the IB Art Studio classes. Each business partner donates at least $500. To learn more about the Business Partners Group and/or to join, please contact
