Annual giving serves as the foundation of philanthropy.
Wayland's annual fund is The Academy Fund. Each year, most independent schools rely on annual fund contributions to provide resources for students and faculty that support educational initiatives not covered by tuition alone.
Your gift to The Academy Fund, our annual fund, supports current priorities of the Wayland educational experience, such as academics, the arts, athletics, and technology, aiming to improve every aspect of academic and student life.
Additionally, we annually celebrate Giving Tuesday and Waylandtines (Wayland's Day of Giving) where alumni, parents, and students all work together to thank donors and secure support for the Academy.
The largest fundraiser for Wayland is our annual Gala & Auction, held every spring during Family Weekend. Our other major fundraisers include our Holiday Online Auction in December and our Big Red Golf Tourney in June.
Your gift, of any amount, to any of these initiatives, benefits every student, every teacher, and every program at Wayland, every day. Your gift matters.
