A Tradition of Generosity
The distinctive qualities that a Christian, private school education provides require a combination of tuition and charitable donations. The Annual Fund serves to invest in people, strengthen programs, and enhance places on our campuses. Your Annual Fund gift is fully tax deductible, while a tuition payment is not. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund give the school the greatest flexibility and are our number one priority.
Every year, the school strives for a high level of participation from the School Board, faculty, staff, current families, alumni, alumni families, grandparents and friends of the school. Our fiscal year runs July 1 to June 30 and every parent is encouraged to participate every year.
Every family is asked to support the Annual Fund. Our goal is 100% participation. This symbolizes a collective investment in the school’s excellence and also increases opportunities for funding through grants.
Every gift, regardless of the amount, enhances the WA experience and is an investment in the mission of our school. Each fall, The PawPrint recognizes all of our donors’ contributions by giving level from the prior fiscal year.
Participation at any level demonstrates a commitment of financial support and encourages others to support our mission. Gifts of very different sizes may be equal in generosity.
