Virtual 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.

Goals

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.
