Webb is truly thankful for each and every member of the Webb community and all Webbies from all around the world who embraced #WeAreWebb and Webb’s Giving Days. Support for The Webb Fund for The Community was overwhelming and will provide the Schools and the Museum with significant funding.
In 48 hours from May 19-21, over 400 donors from 27 states and 11 countries raised more than $500,000 for Webb and the Alf Museum. The Webb Fund is vital every year, but this year that is especially true. With thanks to everyone who chose to make a gift, Webb can support those operating needs that have become even more critical during this time: financial aid for students and families, faculty and staff support, academic programming and technology support, and the health and safety of our campus environment now and in the months and years to come.
If you made a gift during Giving Days, thank you again for supporting our mission, our students, faculty and staff, and our world-class museum. If you did not have a chance to make a gift, there is still time. Webb’s fiscal year ends on June 30th and we would be honored to include you as a donor to Webb this year. Thank you one and all!

Last week, in a series of letters and social media posts, Webb's leadership responded to the call for support of and solidarity with its black students, parents, faculty and alumni—and to further strengthen its commitment to being an anti-racist institution. Below is an excerpt from the most recent letter to the community. This letter and others can be found in full here.
