The Whitfield Fund
Without widespread support from our community, the school would not have the resources needed to provide the uncompromising academic and character education Whitfield families and students expect.
When our families make a gift to The Whitfield Fund, they demonstrate to the community that they are invested in this school.
Every Gift Makes a Difference.
The Whitfield Fund is sustained by gifts of every size, at every level. We encourage every member of the Whitfield community to make a personally meaningful gift. Depending on the person that could be $25 or $25,000.
Our leadership giving level begins at $1,000. It is important that as many members of our community as possible strive to give at this level or above for us to meet our annual financial goal. Collectively, we will close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each and every Whitfield student.
THE WHITFIELD FUND INITIATIVES
Each fall, we kick off the school year by revealing our annual fundraising theme and call for mass support from our Trustees, faculty, staff, current parents, parents of alumni, grandparents and alumni. Funds raised are used within the year they are received; our fiscal year runs from July 1st - June 30th.
The heartbeat of Whitfield is its exceptional faculty and staff that dedicates itself to bringing learning to life. The Honor Project was established to pay tribute to these extraordinary men and women. Contributions are voluntary but serve as an alternative to holiday gifts for teachers; tribute gifts are collected through this fund and in part underwrite a present for each faculty member. All monies exceeding the cost of these presents are allocated to the Whitfield Fund, nearly 60% of which supports our outstanding faculty and staff.
Green & White Gala
This is our annual flagship fundraising event. Each year we honor members of our community who have extraordinarily impacted the people and programs at Whitfield. The event includes a silent and live auction, seated dinner and special tribute program.
Give STL Day
Each May Whitfield participates in Give STL Day. This 24-hour, online day of giving facilitated by the St. Louis Community Foundation is designed to ignite the spirit of giving across the region. This day is a powerful opportunity to show your commitment to our school and to inspire others to give.
