Why the Annual Fund Matters
Providing essential funds for innovative educational experiences, cultural and athletic initiatives, the Annual Fund affords the Foundation the flexibility to provide alternative resources to classrooms that are not covered by the district's budget. Gifts provided through the Annual Fund allow our educators the opportunity to explore new initiatives and help the Foundation respond to areas of greatest need.
Your support makes it possible for many students to access an education that otherwise would not be provided. Your gifts make a tremendous impact; the financial commitments of our donors make transformational opportunities a reality.
Each person has a unique reason for supporting WASD and wanting to ensure that each student has access to the best learning environment possible.
Every year, every gift of every size truly makes a difference.
It is more than giving back, it is fueling the future for all students. Lend your support today and become part of the living legacy for Williamsport Area School District.
In the fall 2021, $7,145 was granted from the Annual Fund to Williamsport Area High School music teachers Sam Robinson and Megan Louder to support materials needed and technical expenses associated with the production of this year’s spring musical, "Into the Woods."
The high school’s last musical production, “Beauty and the Beast,” was canceled when the start of the COVID-19 pandemic closed down schools in 2020.
“It was devastating for the students to rehearse for months, only to have the actual performances taken away days before opening night,” Robinson said. “The Williamsport Area School District Education Foundation has generously stepped forward this year to make ‘Into the Woods’ a reality for us after the financial wipeout from COVID-19. Without their support, this show would have been impossible to produce.”
