At Windward, the funds received from alumni are indispensable to the institution, advancing every aspect of school life. By making a gift to your alma mater, you help ensure that current and future Windwardians enjoy the same life-changing opportunities you had when you were a student. Your gift can be designated to one of two important areas:
Alumni Financial Aid Grant
Funds from the Alumni Financial Aid Grant go exclusively to Windward’s Financial Aid program, which provides integral support to deserving students from all backgrounds. A robust Financial Aid program is critical to ensuring diversity and inclusivity on campus—hallmarks of Windward’s identity.
In addition to Financial Aid, the Windward Fund supports Program Enhancements, and Research and Development. Program Enhancement funds are used to purchase computers, new software, and lab equipment, providing students state-of-the-art resources. Research and Development funds allow faculty to engage in partnerships with prominent universities and attend professional conferences, ensuring Windward stays forward-looking in educational changes. The Windward Fund also supports Windward Network and Alumni Association programming such as the internship program, networking events, affinity groups, and the Alumni Festival.

Gift matching is a way to increase the value of your own charitable gift through your employer. Corporate Matching Gift programs are a great way to double or triple your gift. Simply send us the appropriate paperwork from your employer’s Human Resources Department, and your gift to Windward School will be matched according to your company’s guidelines. We will take care of the rest. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer's name below.
A gift to Windward of appreciated securities entitles the donor to a charitable deduction for its full current market value, without paying the capital gains tax on the appreciation, which would otherwise be required.
