The Annual Fund is made up of yearly gifts from parents, alumnae, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends of Westridge School. It is the primary source of support to bridge the gap between the cost of educating students and tuition revenue. Tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund provide approximately six percent of the Westridge operating budget each year.
Because gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted, they can be immediately directed wherever they are most needed, such as academic programs, the winning Westridge Tigers athletic teams, our myriad opportunities in fine and performing arts, or state-of-the-art technology for teaching and learning.
The Annual Fund supports the cost of the special extras that make a Westridge education unique and a Westridge student extraordinary.
Whether you give to support your daughter's future, honor your educational legacy, or to ensure the future of a school committed to develop in girls their unique qualities as individuals, please support the Annual Fund today.

The Wagener Family Annual Fund Match - Success!
During the 2012-2013 school year, a generous challenge grant was put forth by parents Debbie Heitz and Shaw Wagener to motivate giving to Westridge’s Annual Fund. All new and increased Annual Fund gifts were matched up to $500,000.
The Westridge community rose to the challenge - we have met our match!
Many thanks to all those who contributed to the 2012-2013 Annual Fund, particularly those whose gifts met the criteria for the challenge match. New and increased Annual Fund gifts from last year and pledges made for this year totaled over $500,000!
The Wagener family has matched this $500,000 with a gift to Westridge’s endowment – helping to provide for future generations of Westridge students.
Westridge received new and increased gifts from parents, alumnae, trustees, past parents, grandparents, friends, faculty, and staff to meet this match.
Thank you all for your generous support of the Westridge Annual Fund!
