Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I make a gift to White Mountain?

    A WMS education is made possible by generations of alumnae/i and friends who contribute to the Annual Fund. Your gift helps us prepare and inspire students to lead lives of curiosity, courage and compassion — knowing that those who came before them are behind them all the way.

  • I can only give a small amount. Why should I bother?

    Giving is like voting on Election Day: Your single vote may seem insignificant, but it’s the collective vote that makes a difference. When everyone participates in giving to the Annual Fund, it’s like a vote of support for White Mountain. All of those supporting “votes” add up to thousands of dollars that are used to keep White Mountain running.

  • Where will my gift go?

    Do you have a passion for the arts? Community service? Athletics?

    Do you think WMS wouldn’t be the same without a robotics team,
    climbing wall, sustainability club, or its outstanding faculty?

    Direct your Annual Fund gift to WMS’s Highest Priorities (unrestricted),
    or support a specific area of the WMS experience that you value:

    • Academic Programs and Professional Development
    • Financial Aid and Scholarships
    • Visual and Performing Arts
    • Athletics and Outdoor Education Programs
    • Field Courses and Community Service Trips
    • Facilities and Energy Conservation
    • Residential Life and Student Activities

  • Can I make a recurring gift?
