At Westside School, we believe that education should be accessible to all, regardless of financial circumstances. As an independent school, Westside is driven by its own unique philosophy, values, and approach to teaching. Westside, like all independent schools, relies on the generosity of our donors and supporters in addition to the tuition we charge to support our educational program. This is different from public and parochial schools.
Westside raises funds during the Westside School Fund and Annual Spring Fundraiser (Save the Date, April 20, 2024) to help us fulfill our mission. Gifts of ANY size are appreciated, and some families give up to $15,000. Support Westside and help us grow today!
The Westside School Fund
Each fall, Westside's community of families, faculty, staff, friends, and alumni come together to support our school during the Westside School Fund. These gifts support the full delivery of a joyful and community-oriented Westside education rooted in a solid academic foundation for all of our students.
Westside Schools hosts an annual fall fundraiser, and this year, we face a $250,000 challenge. While we aim to keep our tuition affordable, the gap between the actual cost of education and what families pay is significant. To cover the cost, we rely on the generosity of our community. The numbers tell the story: if each family were able to contribute $610 per student, we would reach our goal of $250,000.
Not every family can contribute at this level. We understand that each family has unique financial circumstances. Some can give more, while others may not be able to contribute the suggested amount. This is where the strength of our community comes through. We depend on those who can give more to support those who cannot contribute the full $610.
Your donation makes a direct impact on the lives of all our students. By contributing generously, you enable Westside School to:
- Maintain Accessibility: Your support helps us keep tuition fees at a level that is accessible ensuring that a Westside education remains within reach for all families, regardless of their financial situation.
- Enhance Educational Excellence: Funds raised are invested in our programs, facilities, and people, enriching the learning experience for every student.
- Empower Future Leaders: Your donation nurtures the next generation of leaders, innovators, and change-makers who will make a positive impact on our society.
At Westside School, we are committed to providing an exceptional education to all students, regardless of their financial circumstances. We invite you to join us in this mission by contributing to our annual fundraiser. Your support, no matter the amount, has the power to transform lives and shape a future of growth for our students and our community. Together, we can continue to make this education accessible and empower the next generation. We hope you are inspired to donate today and be a part of the Westside School legacy.
