In addition to the WT Fund, endowment and capital gifts help support WT’s vision and development for the future.
Endowment: Long-Term Planning
The Endowment represents a longer-term facet of our budget. It comprises charitable gifts given to create an investment principal that grows over time, and that remains a permanent piece of WT’s future. A portion of the fund, 5%, is paid out on an annual basis and provides scholarships and programmatic enhancements.
Capital Gifts: Capital Improvements
Capital gifts make possible facility renovations and expansions such as the recent renovation to the Emily E. Dorrance Library in the Upper School. Constantly evolving to provide dynamic learning environments, the Dorrance Library is the heart of the Upper School Building and memorializes Emily Dorrance, a member of the Class of 1993, who consistently demonstrated the school credo, “Think also of the comfort and the rights of others.”
