Alumni Giving
“Everyday excellence” is more than a description of Watkinson; it’s a promise to our families. We’re committed to providing the resources—personal, intellectual, and material—that allow our students to explore, grow, and thrive. This requires big things: great teachers, accessible advisors, generous scholarships. And it requires smaller things: paper clips, wing nuts, toner cartridges for the photocopier. Tuition covers only part of these ongoing, necessary expenses. The Fund for Everyday Excellence—Watkinson's Annual Fund—does the rest.
