Area of Greatest Need
– With an unrestricted gift, you allow the school to use your contribution where it is most vitally needed. These funds go directly to support students, faculty/staff, programs and facilities. (Should you find yourself choosing more than two funds, you may want to consider a gift to the Area of Greatest Need.)
Academic Programs – Our teachers combine a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum with an inquiry-based approach to learning in all subjects. This fund provides teachers with the innovative classroom resources, technology support, curriculum and co-curricular programs designed to inspire and challenge every type of learner.
Faculty Support – Our faculty are the heart of Walker. Gifts to this fund provide support for our faculty, which includes opportunities for professional development, so they can bring new ideas to their classrooms.
Athletics – Walker athletics are a big source of Wolverine Pride. Gifts to this fund provide for coaching support, equipment, uniforms, field maintenance and also support physical education programs for Primary, Lower and Middle School.
Fine & Performing Arts – The arts are an essential part of a Walker education. Gifts designated to this fund support all of the arts at Walker – from theater to band, from chorus to 2D and 3D visual arts.
Financial Aid – This fund supports financial assistance for students whose families demonstrate need. This allows Walker to enroll talented and motivated students whose contributions enrich Walker’s unique community.
*The Family of Funds supports the faculty and students through the school’s operating budget. Should directed contributions exceed a fund’s budgeted limit, the school’s administration reserves the option to direct the use of such contributions to the area of greatest need.
