THE WATERFORD FUND, EVERY GIFT MATTERS, EVERY YEAR 

When you give to the Waterford Fund, you invest in the promise of faculty and programs that ignite passion, shape character, and stimulate intellect in our students. The Waterford Fund fortifies tuition each year and is a vital part of the School’s resources needed to educate each student. Your generosity empowers our students to grow into citizens who effect change in the world.

Like most independent schools, Waterford relies on annual, tax-deductible gifts—tuition covers 94% of the school’s annual operating budget, while gifts to theWaterford Fund help cover the remaining 6%—which allows the school to fully support core activities, program enrichment, and school development. Support of the Waterford Fund demonstrates loyalty and commitment to Waterford's mission to provide a world-class liberal arts education. 

All families are invited to support the Waterford Fund. Your participation, at any level, is what matters most. Please donate below. Your gift matters—every gift matters. 

THANK YOU for equipping our Waterford Ravens to pursue lives of meaning and purpose!
