What is the Annual Fund?
At its most basic definition, the Annual Fund is our yearly giving foundation that bridges the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Westside education. But what it truly means is possibility. The Annual Fund makes it possible for us to go above and beyond what is expected of a private school in Oregon. It’s what allows us to have a thriving arts department, a music department that recently received outside commendation, and teachers that serve our students daily.
Every penny of the Annual Fund supports our mission, inspiring godly transformation and a Christ-like character through exceptional education and intentional discipleship to impact the world for Christ.
Please join us in providing the greatest possibilities for our students. This year's Heart of Westside Campaign is raising important funds towards this effort.
(Note: The Annual Fund does not fund capital improvements)
