Williston Builds: The Campaign for Our Community


Today, Head of School Robert W. Hill III announced the launch of Williston Builds: The Campaign for Our Community.

In a letter to all students, parents, alumni, and friends of the school, Hill described the $70 million campaign as “deeply rooted in the progress that the school has made over the last decade. This comprehensive fundraising campaign is focused on transforming student and residential life, strengthening academic excellence and faculty development, and investing in the many types of diversity that add depth and vitality to our community.”

Hill noted, “We have an ambitious goal of $70 million, and I’m delighted to share we have already raised $56 million. We are grateful for the incredible generosity of donors who have brought us to this point. Now, as we launch the next phase of the campaign, I invite all alumni, parents, and friends of Williston to help us accelerate this momentum. Your gift of any size, to any purpose, supports our students as they prepare to head out into the world to lead lives of purpose, passion, and integrity.”

In the past two weeks, alumni, parents, and friends of Williston Northampton have helped celebrate the launch at holiday parties in Northampton, Boston, and New York. See photos of the events on our Flickr site.
