We Give to Westerly Because we Believe in it
Westerly, like most independent schools, relies on income from other sources besides tuition to fully support its programs and faculty. Tuition alone cannot cover the cost of education, and the Annual Fund helps make up the difference between tuition revenues and the actual costs of educating the children. All gifts made to the Annual Fund are used in the current school year, having an immediate impact and benefit for each student. Since contributions are applied to the operating budget in the year that they are requested, Westerly depends on donors to support the Annual Fund every year.
Each year, the Annual Fund is overseen by a committee of parents who take a leadership role in their class to encourage 100% participation. In the fall, you will receive an opportunity to give to the Annual Fund. We receive donations from current parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparent, and alumni grandparents. We all give to Westerly because we believe in it and we hope you do too.
All gifts are 100% tax deductible.
