Thank you to the entire Westside community for uniting around Westside during our virtual fundraising campaign. You have proven that Westside Wolves truly do stick together.
Launching a virtual campaign was new territory for us and we entered this process knowing the potential reality of not meeting our fundraising goals this year, but thanks to our Westside community we are excited to announce that we EXCEEDED our overall fundraising goal!
Our community’s response to Friday’s virtual event is a public announcement that Westside is loved and supported, and we are so very grateful.
To date, Westside has raised $125,000 for Tuition Assistance and an incredible $172,000 in additional funds to be used where it is needed most.

2020 Spring Fundraiser: Because Wolves Stick Together
Each spring, Westside parents come together at our Auction to collectively raise funds for our program. There are three primary fundraising goals for this annual event: Supporting our operating budget, our Tuition Assistance program, and a Fund-A-Wish unique to the needs of each year. Raising these funds is crucial, and your support directly enhances each student’s education experience at Westside School.
While the Westside community has been adjusting to quarantining at home, the Advancement Committee has been re-imagining and re-inventing our annual Auction--Westside’s largest community event and fundraiser of the year. The Wolves Stick Together Virtual Campaign from May 11-18 will be in place of our 2020 Spring Auction.

Tuition Assistance: $125,000
Tuition Assistance impacts the quality of education for every student at Westside School. A robust Tuition Assistance program allows us to cultivate a diverse student body who are engaged and elevate the educational experience of their peers. This year, one in seven Westside families received tuition assistance. With uncertain times ahead, supporting the Tuition Assistance program is more important than ever.
Unrestricted Giving: $101,500
During a typical school year, unrestricted funds are raised during raffles, games, auction items, and buy-in parties. We are asking our community to give to this area of the school as if they were at the auction and participating in these auction activities. These funds directly support our program and allow leadership to support areas of the school that need it most.
