Annual Giving

Our Fundraising Goal

Our 2016-17 Annual Giving campaign has the same goal in mind as last year…100% participation among our school families. Under the leadership of our Annual Giving Committee and our WPA Presidents, Sherly Daneshgar and Orley Melamed, we will work hard to exceed our goal, as we successfully did last year, thanks to your generosity.

Last year we achieved a 93% participation rate among Wise School parents who contributed to Annual Giving, a significant increase from the previous year. In addition, 100% of our teachers and faculty also made a gift.

Parents’ meaningful participation in the campaign supports the people and programs that make our early childhood department so unique – talented and dedicated teachers, small classes, and extra-curricular resources. All of this translates into stellar, personalized care, increased intellectual stimulation, and the opportunity to introduce programs that will nurture the whole child. Wise School Early Childhood is in a league of its own.

Direct Your Giving

You will have the opportunity to direct your gift to one or more of the following, which will benefit your child and will continue to build our school’s future.

  • EC General Fund
  • USC Curriculum
  • Partnership
  • Campus Safety
  • Enhancements
  • Enrichment Activities
  • Your Support Makes a Difference

    In the coming weeks, you will receive a phone call from one of our dedicated committee parents who will respond to your questions, explain the campaign in greater detail, and ask for a contribution this year. Your participation is a vote of confidence that supports the vision and mission of Wise School.
