Your tuition check goes a long way at Wildwood School: It helps pay for teachers’ salaries and benefits, safe and functional classrooms, and a host of resources that all contribute to an excellent program. However, tuition doesn’t cover everything—not at Wildwood, nor at most other independent schools in the country. Each year, Annual Giving makes up the difference, an amount equivalent to 8 to 10 percent of the school’s budget.
Annual Giving supports the people and programs that make Wildwood School distinctive and help pay for crucial expenses that impact students in the current school year. Gifts are necessary because they allow teachers to attend important professional conferences and workshops so they can bring new ideas back to their classrooms. They provide flexible tuition for bright, deserving students and ensure that our school community truly reflects our multicultural city. And ultimately, your commitment to Annual Giving helps Wildwood sustain a school environment in which each child is known well.
