Since Westerly’s beginning in 1992, visionary gifts and philanthropy have played a major role in building our school community. Current parents and grandparents give because they witness first-hand the positive impact that a Westerly education has on their child or grandchild. Alumni and past families give because they value the lasting effect Westerly has had on their lives. These contributions uphold Westerly’s tradition of excellence and allow us to continue to grow and enhance our school programs, buildings and curriculum for our current students.
The Annual Fund is your yearly opportunity to make a charitable gift that directly impacts the children at Westerly School! Our goal is for 100 percent of our current parent body to play a role in supporting our school through our annual giving campaign.
Why support the Westerly Annual Fund?
Tuition alone covers just 70 percent of the total cost of a Westerly education. The Annual Fund helps make up the difference.
All gifts made to the Annual Fund are used in the current school year, making 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.
Thank you for joining the Westerly community of past and present families, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, friends, and the Board of Trustees in making this year's Annual Fund a resounding success!
2016- 2017 Parent Class Chairs
Each year, the Annual Fund is overseen by a committee of parents who take a leadership role in their class to encourage 100% participation and answer any questions about the Annual Fund.
