Meet Our Office
The members of the Advancement Office at WRA are stewards of a legacy of generosity initiated by alumnus James Ellsworth, whose extraordinary gifts allowed the school to not only reopen its doors in 1916 but to thrive. Mr. Ellsworth's legacy is sustained today by our many alumni, parents and friends, whose support is apparent all across campus. We invite you to explore our website and the many ways you can become involved in supporting the school.
Information on annual giving, gift planning and bequests, as well as methods of establishing endowed funds, can all be found here. If you are a graduate, we hope you will take full advantage of the resources of our office to help you connect with classmates and the school. Whether you are attending a regional event, returning to campus for Reunion Weekend, or sharing your latest news with us, the Advancement Office is committed to supporting the more than 5,000 WRA alumni across the nation and throughout the world. If you are a parent, or prospective parent, the information contained here will demonstrate how your child's experience at WRA will be supported by the gifts of past parents and alumni, people who care deeply for the school and are committed to preserving its distinctive strengths.
Please contact any member of our team if you would like information or to discuss your individual circumstances. We look forward to speaking with you and, hopefully, to welcoming you to campus very soon!
