Major Gifts

A well-developed major gifts program allows independent schools to move forward significant strategic initiatives outside of a capital campaign. Major gifts are donor-directed, larger-scale gifts in support of transformative programming and big ideas, and they are made in addition to Wildwood Fund gifts.

Like capital gifts, major gifts are often paid out over multiple years. Recent major gifts have funded significant enhancements to the athletics program, provided seed money to launch the Wildwood Institute for STEM Research and Development (WISRD), and underwritten faculty professional development in the social justice and equity arenas. To learn more about Wildwood's major gifts program, contact Kristin Hampton, director of institutional advancement, at or (310) 943-5312.

At Wildwood, community means commitment, and our members repeatedly demonstrate their dedication through their contributions of time and generosity.

Major gifts have helped create and support the campus upgrades and innovative programming that Wildwood students experience today.
