 The Benefit 2022
The Power of a Teacher

Friday, February 25, 2022

NSCD Campus

Please mark your calendar and join us for an evening filled with food, fun and fundraising, with this year’s proceeds supporting our faculty. The event will return to campus for a lovely evening of cocktails, dinner, a live auction, inspiring words about our faculty and a paddle raise. All members of the North Shore Country Day community and their guests are invited to attend. COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
Following the success of last year’s event, we are keeping a virtual option for the program portion of the evening. 
We are beginning our early fundraising. Again this year, we will have a Host Committee made up of families who make a generous contribution to support The Benefit, attend the event and help promote it by lending their names. If you are interested in joining the Host Committee, please contact Tracie Frederick in the Development Office at 847.881.8809 or
Watch for more information in the coming weeks. We are excited to see you there!
Sincerely your Benefit Co-Chairs,
Ritu Jain

The Benefit 2022 Host Committee

Every year since 1981, NSCD has held an annual fundraising event—from an auction, to the Purple Wave, to a Scholarship Dinner. 

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.
