A Proven History of Success
Throughout the school’s 101 years, capital improvements – made possible through donations to special campaigns and initiatives – have distinguished the Wilson experience in exciting ways.
1990-91 Window on the World Capital Campaign
This successful campaign raised 100% of the funds needed to create the school’s first gymnasium, a science lab, as well as other class and office space enhancements.
2004-5 Campaign for Excellence
Creating an even brighter future for Wilson, this effort raised funds to build the current subterranean gymnasium, turf field, library and dining area.
2012-13 Centennial Capital Campaign
A landmark initiative, this campaign raised 110% of its goals transforming the front entry plaza and exterior, creating a library classroom and a one-of-a-kind “innovation” room, as well as contributing to the school’s endowment.
Special Projects Yield Exceptional Experiences
While a major capital campaign may be initiated once every several years, gifts
to The Wilson School in the form of sponsoring a special project help the school make significant leaps forward through opportunities not otherwise possible in an annual operating budget.
If you have an interest in learning more about current special projects, or if you would like to propose an idea that you might have for the school, please contact the development office.
