The Westside School Fund

Annual Giving plays a vital role in the health and growth of Westside School and our students. As is the case with most independent schools, while tuition revenues account for nearly 90% of our budgeted income, those dollars simply aren’t enough to cover the cost of operating our school. Through the generous support and involvement of every member of our school community, funds generated are used to uphold high academic standards, promote confident learners and maintain a strong and caring Westside School community. There are many ways to show your heroic support throughout the year:

Westside School is sustained by our generous community of superheroes who make gifts of all sizes each year through the Westside School Fund. 
Your heroic support provides crucial operating funds for:
 The Tuition Assistance Program 
 Faculty Salaries
 Professional Development 
 Curriculum Initiatives 
 Supplies and Books
 And More!
By giving to the Westside School Fund you allow our dedicated teachers to continue to inspire today’s students. Fundraising for the Westside School Fund happens each fall beginning in October. All pledges are due before Thanksgiving and payments may be made until the end of the school year. 
The Westside School Fund goal for the 2015-2016 school year is $220,000 and 100% participation from the Board of Trustees, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni families, and friends. Help us reach our goal by giving during the Westside School Fund Week of Giving.
