Wooster School is pleased to publish this Annual Report on Giving. Gifts listed in this report were recorded from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. Should you find any discrepancy, please accept our heartfelt apology and notify the Advancement Office at 203-830-3941 so we can correct our records. This report is based on information prior to the annual audit.

What is the Annual Appeal?

The Annual Appeal is a yearly fundraising effort to support Wooster School’s operating budget. Gifts to the Annual Appeal have a direct impact on all aspects of our programming - the students, the faculty and staff, professional development, academic, athletic, artistic, college guidance, technological and extracurricular life of the school. It helps us offer competitive salaries and benefits, as well as keeps tuition at an affordable price so we can offer a Wooster education to as many as possible. These unrestricted funds make it possible for us to deliver the best education to our community.

What is the Gala?

The Gala is a yearly fundraising event to support Wooster School's capital expenses. Monies raised from an auction and paddle raise go directly to specific programming and projects. The event is a wonderful opportunity to bring all members together for a night to celebrate the Wooster community, have fun, and fundraise while doing it. In 2019, the Gala proceeds supported the transformation of the Student Commons, Science Building Upgrade, New Bridge Program Space, Middle School Furniture, and Grover Room Expansions.

What is restricted giving, capital gifts and endowments?

Restricted giving is when monies donated are earmarked for projects. This could be for a capital improvement, a designated gift to endowed and/or established funds, or for a specific purpose.
