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.
