The recently completed July 30, 2017 to June 30, 2018 fiscal year was an historic year in Webb’s history. With thanks to the generosity of Webb families, alumni and friends, our schools received a record $14,730,073 in gifts and pledges, a significant and substantial milestone. While the volume of giving is a wonderful story in itself, the truly important story is what this generosity – your generosity – will mean for Webb. More than just a story of dollars and gifts, your generosity is the story of creating opportunity for Webb’s incredible and eager students and for the dedicated and talented women and men on Webb’s faculty, who teach, inspire and nurture our students.
In this edition of The Report of The Schools
, you will read about Webb’s many distinctive programs that your generosity made possible last year and will make possible in the months and years ahead. Gifts last year supported a wide variety of priorities: The Webb Fund, endowment including financial aid, faculty support and annual campus improvement and finally capital projects including the Vivian Webb Chapel, the Fawcett Library, the Les Perry Gymnasium, a new Centennial Plaza and the first phase of a new front entrance to the lower campus. You gave current gifts ranging from $1 to four gifts of $1,000,000 or greater and you gave planned gifts (those gifts that are ultimately funded from a donor’s estate.) And, on Webb’s first “Giving Day,” 509 donors made gifts totaling over $150,000! All of these are significant personal examples of commitment and generosity, and each one strengthens the foundation created by Thompson and Vivian Webb nearly 100 years ago when they founded Webb.
In his letter at the beginning of this report, Taylor Stockdale, Head of Schools, referred to Webb’s Centennial, the 100th anniversary of Webb’s founding that we will celebrate in 2022. He also referred to the pleasure that Thompson and Vivian Webb would take if they knew that their original vision for this very special school was being supported by your generosity, nearly one-hundred years after they made their own deep, personal commitment. It is timeless and important partnership.
On behalf of Webb’s Advancement Office, we are honored to work with you to help you find the most meaningful way for you to make your commitment to Webb. We stand ready to answer your questions, provide information, and to visit with you so that you always feel connected to Webb. To those who made a gift last year, we offer our thanks and appreciation on behalf of all Webb students, faculty and staff and invite all who care for Webb to join us in the year ahead!
