About the Development Group

The Berkeley High School Development Group (BHSDG) is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1991 by a group of parent volunteers to ensure the quality and excellence of Berkeley High School.

Our mission is to support and strengthen the educational experience of all BHS students by raising and distributing funds to enhance academic and other projects. BHSDG partners with the BHS administration, the Berkeley Athletic Fund, Berkeley Public Schools Foundation, and leadership from BHS small learning communities to target funds efficiently.

In 2017-2018, BHSDG managed over $540,000 in donations and other revenues. With these funds, BHSDG was able to make grants for a wide range of equipment and educational enrichment opportunities.
