President's Message

Every donor who opens a fund with Berkshire Taconic has a story to tell—perhaps even more so after an experience of loss.

That’s the case with the Rev. Ralph E. Peterson of Lenox, Mass., whose beloved wife of 46 years died in December. The accomplished Birgitta—a physician, musician and weaver—now lives on through the fund in her name, which will support early childhood development and children and adults with disabilities.

As Ralph has told us, this endowment is intended to honor her memory by encouraging others to reach their full potential.

This is the great privilege of our work. A dark winter for all of us, and especially for this family, brightens into spring, as Birgitta’s story is shared and celebrated through ongoing gifts to others.
