WA EXCELLENCE, 365 DAYS A YEAR!

Since 1834, the Worcester Academy experience has been distinguished by EXCELLENCE. But we could not be excellent without YOU!

As we approach this year's FOUNDERS DAY, February 28—Worcester Academy’s 187th birthdaywe invite you to make a gift now in support of today’s WA students. Help us meet our goal of 365 gifts, one for every day of excellence at Worcester Academy. All gifts made in the month of February count toward our goal, and gifts of every size make a difference. 

As a special BONUS, all those making Founders Day gifts will get exclusive access to a performance by one of America’s funniest comedians, ALINGON MITRA ’04, who will perform live, online, on Feb. 27.

So, make YOUR gift, and join in the fun on Zoom! We'll share the link. (Exclusive access deadline for GIFTS BY CHECK is Friday, Feb. 26.)

COMEDIAN ALINGON MITRA '04

Alingon Mitra is a stand-up comedian and comedy writer living in New York. He has written for THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH on Comedy Central and was also staffed on ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING for TruTV. He has done stand-up on THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT, CONAN, LATE NIGHT WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, and ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY. After becoming a semi-finalist on LAST COMIC STANDING, Alingon won the coveted “Comic Comeback” award to appear in the season finale. He was selected to be a new face at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal in 2015. Alingon graduated from Harvard, where he was a writer for the illustrious Harvard Lampoon.
