Excellence Access and
Belonging Momentum The Campaign For Our Community
Williston Builds: The Campaign for Our Community focuses on our student and faculty experience, enriching academic offerings in the classroom and providing new and renewed spaces where learning thrives and lives are transformed. It invests in belonging by supporting financial aid—broadening and deepening the pool of applicants we attract. It strengthens our community ties, creating a cozy home-away-from-home, where memories are made and lifelong friendships are forged. And it builds on the momentum we’ve sustained for the past 10 years, propelling us into the next decade on firm financial footing.
Thanks to generous philanthropic support, we have developed new academic programming, created robust professional development for faculty, and expanded academic support for students from every background and learning style. Additional support will help attract and retain exceptional faculty, and invest in our academic spaces.
Access And Belonging
Financial aid funding attracts and assists talented students across the socioeconomic spectrum. It also prepares our students for lives of global citizenship and positive impact. But the cost of a Williston education goes well beyond tuition. By building support for supplemental aid, we ensure that all students feel a sense of belonging.
Thanks to $20 million in generous philanthropic support during this campaign, Williston completed an iconic new Residential Quad featuring two new energy-efficient dormitories. The spacious, centralized quad strengthens the home-away-from-home nature of the Williston boarding school experience, while building connection and community.
every gift supports the campaign!
We aim to stand taller while remaining squarely who we are—helping Williston hold true to its values while emerging as the best possible version of itself. Through Williston Builds, we will double down in support of our remarkable students and faculty. We invite you to join the alumni and parents making a difference to our entire community as we imagine and build Williston’s future together.
All gifts to Williston, including gifts to the Williston Northampton Fund, count toward the campaign.
