Leadership Annual Giving

The Shaw Society

Named for our founder, Pauline Agassiz Shaw, the Shaw Society recognizes leadership donors who ensure the School’s ongoing excellence with Annual Fund contributions of $1,000 or more.

You can see our Shaw Society listing in the most recent Annual Report.


Your Impact

Last year, more than 100 Shaw Society members contributed a combined $700,000 in unrestricted philanthropic support. These gifts help fund the core operation of our School—providing student scholarships, faculty support, tools and materials, or special initiatives—NBSS students and instructors feel the impact of donors’ generosity every day.

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.
