The WIS Annual Fund is the foundation for all giving at our school and impacts every aspect of the WIS experience. We ask every family to give because every family benefits.

Who benefits from the Annual Fund?

  • The children who have the opportunity to benefit from a WIS education where we encourage inquiry and empathy.
  • The teachers who are able to perfect their craft by attending conferences and sharing best practices.
  • The community members who are enriched by their engagement with other WIS families.

Our goal is ambitious, but achievable: 100% participation at whatever level is comfortable for each member of the WIS community.
