Northampton Fund

Make your gift. Support what's meaningful to you.

In this extraordinary year, you can help us meet this important moment with your gift to the Williston Northampton Fund. The Williston Northampton School has invested $1.5 million as of September to change our physical spaces, extend our cleaning protocols, and keep our community safe. We also have increased financial aid for families and committed to additional funding for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives. And when you make your gift to the Williston Northampton Fund, you can choose to support an area that is most meaningful to you.

Thank you for your support!
