Capital campaigns are special fund raising drives to provide large influxes of funds to build significant investments for the future. Like a targeted stock offering in a for-profit business to raise significant funds for future growth and development, capital campaigns in schools provide an opportunity for the community to invest in the future of the school and reap tremendous return on investment for the children it serves. Capital campaigns are separate from the Annual Fund.
WES takes pride in the outstanding support displayed in its three completed capital campaigns. The first secured and renovated out our beautiful home in Bethesda. The second created the Isabelle Schuessler Fund for Faculty Excellence, a fund for special professional development project. The third established an investment fund to support competitive salaries and compensation for faculty. These campaigns showcased the philanthropic vitality of the WES community, the benefits of which today's WES families enjoy.
