Willard Annual Fund
Willard Annual Fund Direct Giving
The Willard Annual Fund ("WAF") was started during the 2009-2010 school year amidst a growing level of panic over the PUSD budget cuts and the negative impact they would have on Willard, particularly to our IB Programme. Motivated again by continued budget cuts in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012, the Willard community raised over $100,000 over this two year period and contributed countless volunteer hours at WAF fundraising events.
In 2017-2018 we raised around $30,000 to support our mandarin, science and library programs. For the 2018-2019 school year our goal is to raise $40,000 to sustain these programs, also this year WAF is in charge of fundraising for 5th Graders Astrocamp. This 3-day science field trip costs about $18,000. It is one the highlights for our fifth graders.
Throughout the year, we will have different fundraisers like Restaurant Nights, Original Works Art Fundraiser, Willard Fun Run, See's Candies Sales, and our Annual Spring Fling/Auction. You can also send direct donations or participate in our 20-for-10 campaing, where you can sign for recurring donations of $20 (or more) for 10 months.
All donations are tax deductible.
