A $100 Million Transformative Gift
On October 23, 2021 Head of Schools Taylor Stockdale announced an alumnus donor had made a future estate commitment to The Centennial Campaign of at least $100 million for the perpetuation of excellence in teaching and learning at The Webb Schools. One of the largest gifts ever to an educational institution, the donor made the gift to honor and celebrate his parents for the wisdom they showed and the sacrifices they made in sending him to Webb.
When fully realized, the newly established Parent Tribute Fund will serve three purposes: attract, nurture and retain exceptional, potentially life-changing teachers; ensure a curious, high energy, kind and hard-working student body is enrolled regardless of financial circumstances; and leverage the schools’ location by creating partnerships enabling Webb students to be actively involved with the many educational, cultural and service institutions in the greater Los Angeles area.
The donor hopes his gift ensures that Webb becomes even more vital and relevant in its second century, and that the gift inspires many others to support the schools and the enduring values for which they stand.
