Annual Giving

Every year, we ask every Early Childhood and Elementary Wise School family, as well as other supporters, to make a contribution to Annual Giving. The funds raised by Annual Giving help to:

  • Sustain our educational excellence and provide exceptional enrichment programs
  • Maintain the highest caliber of faculty and staff who inspire, care deeply, and serve as role models
  • Ensure our technology is state-of-the-art, giving students opportunities to advance their knowledge and skills
  • Provide outstanding athletic and fitness programs
  • Further develop our partnership with the USC Rossier School of Education for our all-students gifted program

Your meaningful gift is a personal investment in Wise School and demonstrates the value you place in ensuring Wise School children receive an academic program that is not only challenging, but also transformative.

GIVE NOW

Our Fundraising Goal

Our 2019-2020 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, Ariana and Kevin West, we will work hard to exceed our goal, as we successfully did last year, thanks to your generosity.

Last year we achieved a 94% 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.
