giving and getting involved

Williston Northampton's volunteer team is key to keeping our alumni and families connected to one another and to the school. We rely on your support to help with our Reunion programming, to ensure successful off-campus events, to gather class notes for the Bulletin, and to meet our Williston Northampton Fund goals for alumni and parents.

Personal contact from volunteers helps strengthen the bond alumni and parents have with each other and with the school. The connections between volunteers and their peers are vital, and the school relies on this dedicated group to serve as ambassadors.
If you would like to volunteer for the Williston Northampton School, please contact the Advancement Office at (413) 529-3300.

Whether you’re a long-term volunteer or new to the team, please know how grateful we are that you have made the school a priority. Thank you for your dedication to—and for your own generous support of—the Williston Northampton School.
