The Voices of Windward



Welcome and thank you for your interest in learning more about development at The Windward School.  The Development Department provides services to support Windward’s fundraising, alumni and outreach programs.  The term “development” includes all fundraising efforts such as the Annual Fund and capital campaigns, as well as special events, the alumni program, and the School’s communications such as The Beacon and The Compass.  The office staff also acts as the liaison between the Windward Parents Association and the School.

The success of any development program depends on the generosity of both gifts and time from its community members, and Windward is most fortunate to have a committed group of people who donate both to support and enhance its proven educational program.  Gifts from parents, grandparents, and alumni, as well as faculty and staff, allow Windward to deliver its specialized program to nearly 800 children each year. 

On behalf of the development staff, I thank you for your interest and dedication to our school.  Please stop by our office in the Judith C. Hochman Building at any time to say hello!
