REPORT OF GIVING

EVERY GIFT MATTERS

We are thankful for the extraordinary support we have received from our Trustees, alumni, parents, grandparents, employees and friends of Brookwood during our fiscal year, July 1, 2016–June 30, 2017. Every gift, no matter the size, truly makes a difference. When combined, the impact is immeasurable. Brookwood support extends a legacy of opportunity, provides academic excellence, and advances the growth and success of the school. View the list of donors from the 2016-2017 school year.

Sheila Geraty: A Legacy of Giving

Sheila Geraty is more than an 18-year consecutive donor to Brookwood, she is an exceptional member of the Brookwood community, is passionate about children’s literature and cares deeply about the breadth and depth of Brookwood’s library collection. It is no surprise then, that in March 2015, Sheila received the “Super Librarian” award from the Massachusetts School Library Association (MSLA), honoring her as a professional who “demonstrates excellence by creating an outstanding School Library program that has made a significant contribution to their school.”

Super Librarian she certainly is. Colleagues and parents at Brookwood continue to praise Sheila for knowing students’ reading levels and preferences so well, adding that she really has a talent for helping children find great books that fit their interests. Part of Sheila’s magic is that she truly knows each child at Brookwood; she is able to select books that both appeal and match reading habits of each student – something that is a testament to the success of the Birthday Book Program. This program allows all current parents the opportunity to support the library by donating a book to the library in their child’s name. Sheila believes that the more interested a student is in the reading content, the more likely he/she will enjoy the experience and naturally look for more information, stories, or authors that bring satisfaction.

Sheila ensures that the Brookwood School library houses the most current books; this is in large part due to the generosity of families that choose to support its success, beginning with the DiCroce family who named the Eleanor M. DiCroce Library at Brookwood School. A number of families have also chosen to endow funds for the library. Endowed funds create a revenue stream in perpetuity, affording Sheila the opportunity to put these dollars to immediate and extraordinary use. For example, the Cotreau family endowment develops collections for social studies, history, government, geography and sociology. This endowment continues to fund a robust social studies collection that ranges from ancient cultures to contemporary books representing countries from across the globe. The Wise family endowment supports the purchase of books that reflect cultures around the world and have lasting interest to the student body. The Stayman family endowment supports the professional and personal growth of teachers and parents.

In addition to the myriad of families that support the library, Brookwood is incredibly fortunate to have a strong partnership with EBSCO, the leading provider of research databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, e-books and discovery service. Brookwood students, faculty and parents have this tool readily available to them and are able to improve their research with quality content and technology.

To learn more about how you can support Brookwood’s library, contact Jennifer Lowrey, Director of Advancement or visit Brookwood.edu/makeagift and select Library Support.

Endowed Scholarship Funds

Gifts made to Brookwood's Endowment in support of Financial Aid further the School's commitment to enrolling students with a broad range of backgrounds, talents and interests.  Gifts may be made to the General Endowed Scholarship Fund, or a named scholarship can be established with a minimum gift of $25,000. Additional gifts may be made to existing named funds to maximize the impact these funds have on our community.  A named scholarship brings honor and support to each student recipient.

The Elizabeth D. Begien Scholarship
The Elizabeth D. Begien Scholarship is named after Elizabeth Begien '80 more affectionately known as "Bizzy." Bizzy is remembered for her optimism, resilience, courage and compassion. The scholarship is awarded annually to a student who "exhibits a love of learning and life as well as caring for those around them."

The Covington Scholarship
The Covington Scholarship established by Bonnie and Chris Covington, is awarded to a student of color entering an Upper School grade that exhibits outstanding effort and demonstrates qualities of character and leadership.

The Dodge Scholarship
The Dodge Scholarship is designed to promote diversity and is awarded to a student in the Upper School, who is in high academic standing, puts forth great effort in academics, exhibits qualities of leadership and character and has financial need.

The Josephine Henley Scholarship
The Josephine Henley Scholarship is awarded to a student who is in good standing within the Brookwood community. The opportunity to have a young, vibrant individual attend Brookwood, who would not otherwise have had the chance, is an honorable remembrance of Josephine Henley.

The Eliot Miles Herter Scholarship
The Eliot Miles Herter Scholarship is given to a student whose family demonstrates financial need and as a testament to a student’s hard work and a celebration of success to come. Miles Herter’s history with Brookwood School began in 1956. As an original incorporator of the school, a trustee from 1957-1974, the Board Treasurer from 1969-1974, a father of four alumni and a grandfather of yet another, Miles Herter’s impact on this community has been profound. More than anything else, Miles “was an easy guy to love. He was so understanding and so compassionate and he believed that everybody deserved a second and third chance in life.”

The Jaques Family Scholarship
The Jaques Family Scholarship is named after Marjorie Motley Jaques who believed that "love and a good education" are all a child needs. This scholarship goes to a student who is a well-respected member of the Brookwood community.

Additional gifts this year: Bill and Bev Jaques

The Peterman-Klesken Scholarship
The Peterman-Klesken Scholarship is awarded to a student who has a compassion for and love of music. The goal is to name a recipient that has similar compassion and love of music as John Peterman's father and Dan Klesken's parents.

Additional gifts this year: Mary Klesken Phillips and Ralph Phillips

Thank You Brookwood Community!

The philanthropic support of Brookwood alumni, parents, employees and friends allowed the school to enhance faculty support, provide more student financial aid, and offer program support that otherwise would not be possible. The broad base of support signals a strong future and belief in the leadership of the school. Brookwood gifts this year, and every year, make a tangible difference in the every day life of the school. The Brookwood Fund achieved $626,010 for 2016-2017.
