Donations Help Us Run Our School

Like all private schools, tuition only covers 73% of WDS’ annual operating budget. We rely on donations from our families, summer families, grandparents, and alumni to make up the difference to run our wonderful school.

Every year, we fundraise to close the gap between tuition revenue and what it costs to run the school. Fundraising events like our Auction and gifts to our Annual Fund make it possible for the school to pursue an educational mission that prioritizes creative, experiential learning with a classroom setting that extends across our garden, woods, and pond, an end-to-end community that teaches citizenship and compassion in equal measure, and a rich array of art, music, and enrichment that challenges the whole child. What we have created for children is magic, and we ask for your help — above and beyond tuition — to continue to make that magic happen, every day.

The proof is in the pudding: in 2016-17 99% of our families made gifts to the Annual Fund.

STEM Challenge Grant

In 2016 we received a three-year $300,000 challenge grant from the Marilyn and Jim Simons Foundation. The purpose of the grant is to enhance our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program. Every dollar you donate to our STEM match is matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 each year until 2019 and will go exclusively towards STEM at WDS.
