Ways to Give to WCS

Annual Giving

The Collegiate Annual Fund Effort (CAFE) is comprised of voluntary, tax-deductible gifts from parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends. Each year, the CAFE funds projects that benefit students, teachers, classrooms and facilities. As the majority of tuition directly pays for salaries and benefits, instructional expenses, and facility maintenance, WCS relies on fundraising through the CAFE (and other organizations and projects) to help provide educational opportunities and extracurricular enhancements above and beyond the norm. The opportunities and enhancements are what we believe make our school special.

Will you support the CAFE this year? For questions about fundraising and the CAFE, contact Katie Hatfield Gunzelman '07 at 316-771-2392 or kgunzelman@wcsks.com.
