About


On our first annual 1799 Day, we invite Westonians across the world to unite, take action, and make a gift to the Westtown Fund to support the school’s most urgent needs. 

During this difficult year, Westonians have risen to the challenges of a pandemic, our students’ increased needs for financial aid, and our collective effort to make our community truly equitable and inclusive for all. We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of generosity from Westtown parents, alums, faculty, staff, and friends.

We have raised just over $1M for the Westtown Fund this year, and there is still work to be done. We need your help. Our goal is to exceed 222 donors in honor of Westtown’s 222nd year! If you are able to make a gift, please join us and you’ll inspire others to make a gift, too.


Here's how you can support Westtown on 1799 Day:

1) Make a gift - All gifts count, no matter the size! you can even set up a custom gift match or challenge gift on this page!

2) Become an advocate - Click on the 'Advocate' tab and sign up to inspire others to participate! We will track the impact you make by sharing the campaign and inspiring others to join you!

  • Step 1: Sign up to be an advocate—click on the 'Advocates' tab above to get started.
  • Step 2: While logged into your advocate account, use the social media, text, and email buttons to help spread the word.
  • Step 3: Check back to the ‘Advocates’ tab to see how many clicks, dollars, and donors you’ve generated for Westtown.

3) Make a Personal Plea - Show our entire community why you support Westown by uploading a short video about why you give to Westtown! Your personal touch will surely resonate with others and we will be able to track the impact of your plea!


Today is an exciting day at Westtown and we need your help to make #Westtown1799Day the most successful giving day, yet!

Trivia Question #13 of 13

One challenge met, another to go!

We did it! Together we met the challenge to secure 333 donors and we unlocked a $5,000 gift! We appreciate each and every one of you who participated in this campaign and we are grateful for the generosity of the anonymous donor who knew Westonians would rise to the challenge!

We are down to our last hours of 1799 Day, and our advocates are still reaching out and promoting the campaign! And, because every gift makes a difference, we have a NEW challenge!

If we reach 500 donors before midnight, making this campaign the most successful giving day in the history of the school, we will receive an additional challenge gift of $1,500 from a current parent!

If you are in a position to make a gift, we invite you to help us achieve this milestone in support of Westtown students, faculty, and staff.

 

Thank you!
