Shaw Society

Above: For 140 years, North Bennet Street School has evolved and adapted to serve our community by providing hands-on training, to help people achieve meaningful lives and livelihoods. With careful focus over the past year, we remained resolute in this work. Hear directly from our students about their perseverance and appreciation for community support. Make a gift to NBSS today.


North Bennet School's most loyal and generous Annual Fund donors directly support financial aid, capital and equipment needs across our programs, facilities maintenance, and field experience for our students and faculty.


Last year, Shaw Society donors contributed more than $580,000 to the school - 90% of our total Annual Fund revenue. Whether these funds support student scholarships, or tools and materials, NBSS students feel the impact of donors’ generosity each day.


During times of uncertainty, unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund are essential to our stability and security. A robust Annual Fund provides our President and the Board of Directors as much flexibility as possible to address the greatest needs of the School, pilot new initiatives, and accommodate the day-to-day needs of faculty and students.
