Waterford Rises Campaign Goal: $30 million

Please join us as we imagine, invest, and inspire the future for Waterford School. Waterford Rises will position us for continued success in academics, in student health and well being, in attracting and retaining the highest quality faculty members, and in providing a world-class PreK-XII education in the liberal arts. A significant investment in facilities is crucial to our continued capacity to prepare students to lead lives of meaning and purpose.

The investment to realize Waterford Rises—two new state of the art buildings, a turf field and financial security by way of increased endowment—is beyond the revenues available from tuition income and annual giving. Only through a community effort of extraordinary gifts can we achieve our ambitious but carefully crafted plan.

The School is thrilled to announce that our community unlocked the $250,000 Mika Family Challenge match — meaning that the first $50,000 of every gift donated from January 24, 2023 through March 14, 2023 was matched by the Mika Family to double the impact of gifts. During this window, our community donated $835,550!


Campaign Goal Progress


“With the support of the Miller Family in providing a $1M challenge gift for this final phase of the campaign, all donors should be inspired that their donation will have twice the impact. There is no better time and no better way to support your School, and every dollar makes a difference”
