Founders Day is coming!
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 19, 2020. This year marks our 5th annual day of giving, and we have an ambitious goal of 1,500 supporters which will unlock $100,000 for the Williston Northampton Fund.
Thanks to the more than 1,300 alumni, parents, families, faculty, staff, students, and friends who came together in support of the Williston Northampton School on our Founders Day last year, we’re confident the community will once again come together and support the school in record numbers!

The origins of Founders Day
Williston Seminary began to celebrate Founders’ Day shortly after Samuel Williston’s death in 1874. Archivist Rick Teller ’70 writes about the history of this day in his From the Archives blog.
