Every year since 1981, NSCDS has had an annual fundraising event. From an Auction, the Purple Wave and the Scholarship Dinner, to this year's  Centennial Benefit that was the Party of the Century, we have been grateful for the support of the School for this fundraiser.

Over the years, North Shore’s annual benefit has raised more than $6 million to fund areas not fully covered by the operating budget, such as curriculum and teaching fund grants, student scholarships and faculty enrichment grants. It has also helped fund major capital projects including the renovation of the Lower School, construction of the Conant Science Center and renovation of the Auditorium and Arts Center.
