Welcome to the Warwick Academy Development Office

The Development Office at Warwick Academy functions to build its base of friends and increase support through its fund development programmes. The office is responsible for annual giving, alumni relations, capital campaigns, records and research, marketing and public relations. The Development office supports the mission of the school by developing and implementing a variety of advancement activities through news and information communications, alumni and parent relations and fund development and activities.

Your Support is Critical

With the help of alumni, parents and friends, through outright gifts or planned giving, Warwick Academy aims to secure its firm financial footing for the future and preserve the special qualities that have distinguished the school and its students for more than 350 years; qualities that have made such a profound and enduring difference in so many lives.

Providing For Today: The Annual Fund

While the endowment is an investment in tomorrow, the Annual Fund supports Warwick Academy today. Like many private schools, tuition alone doesn't cover the cost of the education. That is where the annual fund comes in. Yearly gifts from supportive alumni, parents and friends help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a Warwick student. Growing the Annual Fund will have an immediate positive impact on the students and faculty alike. The success of the Annual Fund depends on the collective generosity of our alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends of the school. Every gift we receive – whether $25 or $25,000 – makes a difference at Warwick.

Securing The Future Through Endowment

A healthy endowment is a critical part of any independent school's financial strength. Capital gifts to endowment provide long-term support of worthy projects and also generate a steady and predictable flow of support for daily operations. People give to endowment because they believe in an institution's mission and have confidence in its wise and effective management and use of these funds.

Alumni – Always part of our family

Here at Warwick Academy our students current and past are all part of the Warwick Academy family. We value and want all our alumni to stay in touch with the school. Various events are held throughout the year that encourages our alumni to come back and be involved.

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life.
