In early fall of 2019, a team of dedicated donors came together with the goal of helping raise nearly $100,000 from new and increased gifts. Together, their leadership inspired record-breaking giving with more than 50 parents increasing or doubling their previous gift for 112% growth, renewals from lapsed contributors, and nearly 100 new donors. Join us in thanking these generous leaders!

senior collage

Every year, seniors leave a gift that supports younger students, honors teachers, or highlights an aspect of their experience that they feel strongly represents their class. Even as the COVID-19 pandemic challenged their choice or access to college in the fall, the Class of 2020 chose to seed a Student Emergency Financial Aid Fund. This special fund helps provide financial aid assistance to WT families directly impacted by the economic fallout of this crisis.

“When we first chose our senior gift, it was focused on helping younger students to obtain things we may have struggled with – whether that be textbooks or other academic needs. Now, we realize there is a greater need. Even though many of us are confused and feeling helpless, seeding this fund is something the seniors are very proud to do. We believe that giving back to our school means helping other students to thrive as we did, and to support other students as they support us.”

—Tricia Sarada, Chair of the Senior Gift Committee

Together with more than 200 students, teachers, parents, and alumnae/i, we provided more than $25,000 in relief for seven families with 11 students. For these seniors to practice empathy actively and boldly in the face of their challenges serves as an inspiration, and one more reason to love WT!
