Frequently Asked Questions
The WSMShine is our annual giving campaign and the cornerstone of all our fundraising efforts. It plays a critical role in helping us expand and enhance the educational experience of our current and future students, from continuous program and facilities enhancements and ongoing professional support for our faculty and staff, to expanded financial aid resources for current and future families.
Our WSMShine goal is to set the foundation for our Strategic Plan Initiatives.
Along with supporting professional development and financial aid opportunities, we have set the following priorities for enhancing our facilities and programs.
- Adding more Toddler Classrooms
- Creating a perimeter trail around Main Campus.
- Creating an Elementary Wing.
- Building Offices for our faculty.
Annual funds are common practice among independent schools. WSMShine is used to support the school’s continual pursuit of improved excellence. WSMShine provides for opportunities beyond the basic operating expenses (salaries, benefits, utilities, maintenance, etc.) already covered by tuition. Covered by our WSMShine include those items that help make a WSM education the best it can be, from facilities improvements and technology enhancements to ongoing professional development for faculty and staff.
Yes! Every gift is important and valued. Just three gifts of $200 put a new iPad in the hands of a teacher. $1,000 sends a teacher to a national conference and $1,500 helped make our amphitheater a reality or may make a WSM education possible for another child.
If you are considering a one-time donation, please consider a monthly gift through automatic bank draft, easy to set up and easy to make the meaningful gift you want. Consider the impact if every family who gave $100 in the past would consider a $30 monthly donation. Wow!
Being a part of the WSM community adds significant value to the lives of our children and families. We encourage you to give in an amount that is meaningful for your family. Whether your gift is $50 or $5,000. Ultimately, it is not how much you give but that you give.
All contributors will be recognized in the annual report, unless you request to remain anonymous. Gift amounts are not listed. In honor of our founding year of 1973, all gifts of $1,973 and greater are recognized as leadership gifts.
