Pay It Forward

Introducing Berkshire's Legacy Gift Matching Challenge

Dear Berkshire Community,

We are excited to share an unprecedented opportunity to make an impact on Berkshire today and in the future:

For new every new or expanded planned gift committed to Berkshire, an anonymous donor will make a gift in your name to the Annual Fund equal to 10% of your future legacy gift.

We hope you'll join us in this chance to Pay It Forward. By coming together in support of the Berkshire of tomorrow, we can unlock up to $10 million for Berkshire today.

Please read below to learn more about what prompted us to include Berkshire in our estate plans and to find out how you can participate in the challenge.

To begin a conversation, please contact Director of Advancement Andrew Bogardus at 413-229-1237 or or Major Gifts Officer Bill Bullock at 413-229-1368 or

With appreciation for the part you play in Paying It Forward for Berkshire,

Bebe Bullock '86
Hans Carstensen III '66
Godman Society Co-Chairs
