Wings for Wingra Fund
The Wings for Wingra Fund is a yearly effort to raise funds to support the people and the program that makes Wingra School such a great place. Each year, Wingra parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, staff and friends participate in this community-wide effort to ensure that every student receives the best educational experience possible.
As in most independent schools, tuition at Wingra School covers only a portion of the cost of educating each student and operating our school (approximately 85%). The Wings for Wingra Fund helps us bridge this gap. Gifts to the Wings for Wingra Fund are put to immediate use to support key elements of our program, such as maintaining small class sizes, supporting staff salaries and professional development, equipping the classrooms, and providing tuition assistance.
Why Not Raise Tuition?
Wingra School strives to keep tuition as affordable as possible. It has always been a value to have our school community reflect a wide diversity of racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. In addition, gifts to Wings for Wingra Annual Fund are tax-deductible while tuition is not.
Why Is Participation Important?
Participation in the Wings for Wingra Fund unites us in supporting a place that we all love and demonstrates commitment to furthering our mission. It also encourages others to join us in supporting our school. Each year, we strive to achieve 100% participation from the board members, parents, and staff.
How Much Do We Donate?
Any gift—no matter its size—is appreciated and makes a real impact for our students and staff. Wings for Wingra gifts range from $1 to $25,000. We hope that each donor gives as generously as possible within his or her means. Give now!
