Why Give?

The loyalty and generosity of parents, grandparents, guardians, loved ones, alumni, families of alumni, and community partners ensure our ability to inspire active, joyful learning every single day.

In addition to the day to day educational services and supports that we offer to our extraordinary students, additional programming, updating program and plant, and so much more in not supported by tuition alone.

Additionally, Charles Wright Academy grants more than $3 million in financial aid every year, with approximately 37% of CWA students receiving financial aid. Your gifts support a broad range of talented and hard-working students from around the South Sound, bringing all children at CWA the many benefits of social and economic diversity in the classroom and opportunities for cultural competence that will take them into their own future with confidence.

Giving a meaningful gift, no matter the size, is a demonstration of support for our students, our school, our faculty and staff, and our educational mission. Pushing forward our vision for the future to continue to offer high quality programming and realizing the initiatives in our strategic vision for the future. Your support makes that possible.

During the 2020-2021 school year, 75% of enrolled families made a gift to CWA, helping make all students’ education an exceptional experience. Read more about the impact and importance of your gifts of time, talent, and other resources.

Every class is dynamic and different, and because it’s such a collaborative environment, I can’t help but soak up the enthusiasm and respond to the spontaneity of the students’ work. It’s the best of both worlds because not only do I get to teach them something, but also I get to see them learning it for the first time.

Christina Bertucchi, Upper School Visual Arts Teacher and Department Chair, P '33

Did you know over 70% of CWA’s faculty and staff during the last year made one-time, annual, or monthly gifts to CWA? 

Why? Well, who better to answer that question than the faculty and staff themselves:

I give to the Annual Fund because I believe CWA does a wonderful job of providing a well-rounded liberal arts education. All of our students receive a broad exposure to academics, the arts and athletics.

Gil LeFrancois, Upper School Math Teacher P'10 & '14
