The WIS Annual Fund is the philanthropic foundation of giving at WIS.

Like other independent schools, WIS relies on the Annual Fund to support critical budget needs and drive innovation across our programs and activities. When you support the Annual Fund, you help us achieve our mission and make a profound difference. Your gift provides additional resources for students and faculty and supports educational initiatives that go above and beyond what is covered by tuition alone.

Our Goal: Ambitious, yet achievable—100% participation at whatever level is comfortable for each member of the WIS community. We are grateful for every contribution.

Gifts to The 2023-24 Annual Fund will support a broad range of programs and initiatives at WIS, including:

  • A robust and inclusive curriculum that inspires a passion for inquiry-based learning.

  • Financial aid to support students and families.

  • International-mindedness, diversity, and inclusion initiatives relating to teaching practices, curriculum, employee recruitment, and more.

  • Faculty training to ensure that our educators engage in life-long learning.

  • Athletic programming that empowers students with leadership skills they can use both on and off the court, field, or track.

  • Experiential visual and performing arts programming.

  • Other areas of greatest need throughout the year.

Your participation truly matters. Every gift in every amount makes a difference. Thank you for supporting WIS.
