    donate Willard Annual Fund Direct Giving

    The Willard Annual Fund ("WAF") was established in 2009/2010 in response to District
    budget cuts threatening to negatively impact Willard Elementary programs, particularly
    our International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. WAF provides a critical function by
    funding personnel and supporting programs which would not otherwise exist due to budget cuts.

    For the 2022-2023 school year, our goal is to raise $70,000 to sustain the science program. 
    Throughout the year, we will have different events and initiatives to meet our goal. See below for some upcoming events where you can support our Annual Fund.

    Fundraising takes a village. From creative ideas to physical work, there is never a
    shortage of things that need to be done. Currently, the annual fund committee has two
    people, but we’re keen to grow our Annual Fund Team. If you would like to join us and
    take additional responsibilities, please reach out.
    We also need volunteers to help set up and run events, so even if you can’t take on a
    long term voluntary position, but would still like to help out when you can please send an
    e-mail to willardannualfund@gmail.com and we can add you to the mailing list for
    volunteer opportunities.

    The easiest way to make an impact is to set up a recurring monthly donation. To meet
    our target this year all we need is for every family to donate $150. That’s just 0.83c per
    school day. That’s a recurring donation of $12.50 per month.
    We understand it’s not possible for all our families to donate this way so we ask you
    support WAF where you can by coming to our events and participating in our initiatives
    like Free-dress Fridays.
    To set up a recurring donation or a one-off donation please use the button at the top of
    the page. All donations are tax deductible.

    There are three ways to donate:
    - Drop off your donation at the Willard School Main Office;
    - Donate by mail: 351 S. Hudson Avenue, Room 153, Pasadena, CA 91101 (Make
    check payable to Willard Annual Fund or Willard AF); or
    - Donate online http://weblink.donorperfect.com/Willard


    Thank you to all the families who support Willard and make our school an engaging
    learning environment for our children!
