At Wilson, our mission guides everything that we do, including our approach to our endowment. Our commitment to prepare students for success in an ever-changing world is also a commitment to secure Wilson’s future as a home for generations of students to come.
According to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the median endowment for a school of Wilson’s size is approximately $5 million. In 2017, Wilson embarked on a campaign to build its endowment - the Foundation for the Future Endowment Campaign. This campaign is the first step toward achieving our long-term ambitions to meet and exceed the NAIS median. The Wilson Community celebrated reaching its first-phase goal of this effort, $1.5M in gifts that will bring the school’s core investment to approximately $2M.
Funds generated from gifts to our endowment, large and small, allow donors to leave a legacy and to ensure future generations receive the benefits of a Wilson education. With each endowment gift, the principal is invested and a portion of the income becomes available each year to support the school. The Foundation for the Future Campaign:
