Founders Day Social Media Toolkit

On Wednesday, February 20, the Williston Northampton School community around the world are joining together for the school’s fourth annual day of giving. Help us reach 1,178 gifts (for our 178th year!) to unlock $75,000 for the Williston Northampton Fund. We will only be successful when the Wildcat nation comes together with your help! It’s as easy as 1—2—3—4!

First, show your support by making your own gift!
Join fellow alumni and follow us on social media (scroll down for links).
Share our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts (feel free to use Snapchat too!).
Create a post about Founders Day (tag us!), update your profile pic, and add a Founders Day Facebook frame.
