The Williston Northampton 2010-11 Annual Fund surpassed the goal of $1.45 million dollars, raising a total of $1.47 million from alumni, families, and friends.
This year, we saw a significant increase in participation from alumni. We’re pleased to report that 21% of all alumni made Annual Fund gifts, a mark we last reached in 2006. Just as impressive, 71% of Williston parents gave to the Parents’ Fund. Thank you for your part in our terrific results.
The Class of 2011 challenged the faculty to see which group could achieve the highest percentage of Annual Fund participation in what became the race for the Frog of Annual Fund Awesomeness. It was a close contest, but the faculty (91% participation) edged out the seniors (83% participation). The faculty was awarded the Frog at the last assembly of the year, but we’ll see if the Class of 2012 can take the trophy back next year.
Every Annual Fund dollar will be used to support faculty salaries, student financial aid, and the upkeep of our beautiful campus. There is no part of the Williston Northampton experience that the Annual Fund and Parents’ Fund don’t touch. Thank you for making a gift—and a difference—to the school, its faculty and students.
