Parent Giving to the williston northampton fund: Making THE DIFFERENCE
Participating in the Williston Northampton Fund—no matter the size of the gift—is the most important thing that a parent can do in support of the Williston Northampton School.
Each year, parent giving to the Williston Northampton Fund provides vital support to the school's operating budget. Gifts address Williston's most pressing needs and the institution's highest priorities.

The Williston Northampton School Fund raises unrestricted dollars that directly flow into the school’s operating budget each year. Gifts from parents and families raise approximately one-third of the overall Williston Northampton Fund each year.
While tuition at Williston is substantial, it covers only 77% of the actual cost of educating each student. The Williston Northampton Fund helps to make up the difference.
Gifts from parents and families to the Williston Northampton Fund gifts go to work immediately to fund the daily priorities of the school. Every dollar benefits each student every day. Your support also signals to fellow parents, alumni and faculty that Williston is a philanthropic priority for you. It is a meaningful way to become involved in an organization in which you believe.
Every dollar raised goes directly to the current operating budget and enhances the educational and extra-curricular opportunities available to our students. Gifts from parents and family support faculty enrichment opportunities, the theater and arts program, athletic equipment, the school's facilities, library resources, and more.
Participation is what matters most, and every gift makes a difference. Every year, close to 70% of parents made a gift to the Williston Northampton Fund ranging from $5 to $50,000. We hope that you will support the Williston Northampton Fund at a level that is comfortable for your family.
