Lick-Wilmerding High School is extremely fortunate to enjoy a tradition of philanthropy, one started with the founding of the school in 1895. This tradition of generosity provides the vital financial resources that every independent school—and especially LWHS given its expansive mission—needs to thrive and grow. Generations of parents, trustees, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends have contributed to the school with a generosity of spirit that simultaneously inspires and humbles us. We are charged by the generosity of James Lick, Jellis Wilmerding, and Miranda Lux to continue finding ways in which we can support LWHS now and well into the future.
Currently, our annual priorities include The Fund for LWHS
, which bridges the gap between tuition, endowment revenue, and the full cost of educating LWHS students; THE event
, which highlights the talents of our community with a stimulating and social evening for adults, and funds a particular need for the school; local and regional alumni gatherings and career networking opportunities
; and ongoing communications via newsletters, social media, and the annual alumni magazine.
If you would like to learn more or get involved as a volunteer, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact any member of the LWHS Alumni & Development Team. Thank you for supporting LWHS!
