Watkinson Now Fund

“I wanted to change a student’s life, and also bolster the student community today.”

Kathleen Kane-Francalangia, alumni parent and past trustee

Last year, we raised an unprecedented $960,000 for the Watkinson Now Fund, which gives the Admissions office the ability to provide scholarships to new and current students whose only barrier to Watkinson is financial.  This funding provided 17 students with multi-year scholarships, including one student whose entire tuition will be paid through a Change a Life, Fund a Lifer scholarship over her seven years at Watkinson.  That gift changed this student’s life.  Every gift to the Watkinson Now Fund will help change students’ lives by giving them the opportunity of a Watkinson education, by giving them the benefits of a Watkinson education, including a love of learning, the ability to think critically, the passion to speak up and self advocate when needed, and the power to shape their lives and the world around them.  Each and every gift also creates financial strength for Watkinson by creating a new stream of revenue for scholarships in addition to the over $3 million dollars in financial aid that Watkinson annually awards.

Make your gift today and give more students the opportunity to create their very own Watkinson story.
