From the Chief Advancement Officer

Supporting Community

If you ask a Webb donor why they support the schools or the museum they will often respond with a common sentiment – community. It is the heart and soul of the Webb ethos, and we are incredibly grateful that our community includes alumni, parents and friends who give generously and selflessly year after year to support the Webb experience for today’s students and future generations.

Bob Fass

As we celebrate The Centennial, we also celebrate the role philanthropy has played in our story. The dormitories, classrooms and laboratories, theaters, athletic facilities, dining hall, chapel and faculty homes – each of these tells a tale of someone special  who found a way to give back and demonstrate their values and legacy. The same is true of endowed scholarship funds, faculty development and program funds, and more. And, of course, the glue that binds together our margin of excellence on an annual basis is The Webb Fund. It helps us provide innovative and dynamic experiences for students in the classroom, on campus, in the Greater Los Angeles region and beyond.

The Webb we know today has been built on the loyalty, determination and generosity of our community. We honor and thank each of you for your gifts, big and small, and the impact they have had on Webb students, faculty and staff.

As we look to The Next 100, we would be honored to discuss how you can play a role in supporting the mission and values of The Webb Schools now and into the next century. Our Advancement Office will match your specific interests and passions with gift opportunities that maximize value for the schools and the museum as well as for you as a donor. Together, our community is stronger than ever before and poised for even greater successes.

We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to campus or to one of our many events across the country and around the world.

The Next 100

The Centennial

In 1922, Thompson and Vivian Webb founded The Webb Schools in the rolling foothills of Claremont, California. Over the last 100 years, we’ve seen the timeless values first embedded in the Webb School of California tested and reaffirmed, the establishment of the world-class Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology and the founding and flourishing of a singular and extraordinary Vivian Webb School. Always more than the sum of its parts, The Webb Schools continue to thrive today, an educational powerhouse like no other.
