Give to Waterford

Thank you for visiting the Development web page at Waterford. Our office welcomes the opportunity to answer your questions and share our passion for Waterford School.

Since its beginnings in 1981, Waterford School has relied on a partnership with parents and community members to succeed in its mission to provide life-changing education in the liberal arts experience. As Assistant Head of School for Enrollment and Institutional Advancement, my role is to honor, sustain, and expand this crucial partnership between the school and its philanthropic community. 

At Waterford, we recognize that philanthropy — voluntary action for the common good — is essential to the quality of life all around us. Through the remarkable dedication of parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, Waterford is able to enhance its academic programs, create compelling arts and athletics experiences, care for and grow our extraordinary campus and facilities, and more. The impact of philanthropy on our School is profound.

 In the Development Office, we work to ensure that philanthropy at Waterford merits the respect and trust of every donor. We want every community member to have full confidence in the School so that our culture of giving will thrive for the benefit of our students. We are dedicated to supporting the School’s mission by nurturing lifelong relationships with our alumni and families, securing financial resources through the Waterford Fund and Endowment Fund, and promoting Waterford locally and nationally.

Thank you again for your interest in Advancement at Waterford School. I look forward to working with you in building a bright future for our entire community.
