Webb’s second annual Giving Day was a tremendous success, with 565 donors giving over $194,000 in a 24-hour period from April 25-26 (noon to noon) to support The Webb Fund, the Alf Museum, scholarships and more.
Webb reached out to its network around the world and asked alumni, students, parents and faculty to show their support for Webb’s 24/7 learning environment, and the response was incredible. Within the first 12 hours, the campaign surpassed its goal of 405 donors.
Giving Day kicked off with 83 students giving during lunchtime, and donors from the global Webb community continued to give around the clock. Webb support extended across 12 countries and 30 states.
The success of Giving Day was made possible with the help of our dedicated volunteers. Thank you to Webb’s trustees, Alumni Council, class agents, parent, faculty and student volunteers for reaching out to their peers and encouraging them to support this campaign.

One of the best ways to fully appreciate a Webb education is to look at the lives and achievements of our alumni. Each year, we honor a group of alumni for their accomplishments since graduation and pay tribute to their continued commitment to the mission and success of Webb. These awards recognize distinguished graduates who reflect the character and leadership qualities developed at Webb.
Thank you to the 1,500 alumni, parents, past parents, grandparents and friends who enabled Webb to end the 2018-19 Webb Fund year successfully on June 30. Your generosity helped The Webb Fund to raise over $1.9 million, plus additional support for endowment and capital improvements, bringing total gifts to $7.9 million, including 13 new estate gifts, which has become an ever-increasing and important part of our advancement program. Over 799 alumni, spanning nine decades, participated with gifts received from nearly every class between 1937 and 2018. Thank you for your contributions!
The Los Angeles Timesput together a dreamy four hour itinerary in the "City of Trees and PhDs." A destination it brands "delightfully smart,"is highlighted in a wonderful gallery of 20 photographs. Included in the piece are links to both The Webb Schools and the Alf Museum. Again, read more in the LATimes about the place Sunset Magazine labelled in 2016 "the best suburb in the West."
