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. BHSDG Tax ID# is 94-3173406.

Our mission is to support and strengthen the educational experience of all Berkeley High School students, including students at Berkeley Technology Academy and Berkeley Independent Studies. 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 2020-21, BHSDG managed over $386,000 in donations and other revenues. With these funds, BHSDG was able to make grants to support teachers and students during distance learning, including professional development, equipment, and educational enrichment opportunities.
