The Webb School is fortunate that more than 20% of our annual budget is received from annual contributions and income from our endowment. These additional funds, along with tuition, allow us to offer wonderful opportunities to our students in academics, arts, and athletics.
Each year, near the beginning of the academic year, Webb kicks off a Five-Week fundraising campaign in support of the Webb Fund. While gifts can be made at any time, this brief fall campaign helps maximize the percentage of donors who give to the Webb Fund early in the year and allows the school to reduce the number of solicitations throughout the year. Whether your gift is $10, $100, $1,000 or more, your participation truly makes a difference.
This year’s Five-Week Webb Fund Campaign kicks off on September 19, 2021. Look for more details here and in your mailboxes soon about how you can #SayYes to the Webb Fund!
