Shaping Lives Fund Reaches $500K!

By Ms. Rebecca Kerbel, Director of Advancement 

Thank you to all our families who have been part of the success of the first year of our annual Shaping Lives Fund. The Shaping Lives Fund plays an important role by providing the school with difference-making funds. The fund helps cover costs beyond tuition (which covers staffing and operational costs only). It funds our needs as a school to ensure we can continue to provide students and staff with the best tools, resources and training possible. Through your generosity, we have raised over $500,000!
Next week we will share a video highlighting the impact of your gifts to the Shaping Lives Fund; in the meantime, see below highlights of what we have been able to fund this year through your support.

  • Junior school iPads

As you can see, donations to the Shaping Lives Fund impact all WPGA students. We invite ALL families to join us in supporting the Shaping Lives Fund in a way that is meaningful for you. Please consider giving by the end of the school year. My own contribution to the Shaping Lives Fund is a way to give back to the place I love coming to work every morning.
Please contact me  if you have any questions about the Shaping Lives Fund or about giving at WPGA. Online donations can be made here. Thank you!
