About the Campaign

Invest in Excellence: Front & Center

The Comprehensive Campaign for Walnut Hill Exceeds its Goal

June 30, 2018 marked the end of our fiscal year, as well as the end of our comprehensive campaign, Invest in Excellence: Front & Center. It was a banner year for the Annual Fund, and a wonderful conclusion to our multi-year fundraising campaign. Thanks to your generosity, we received $1.86 million in charitable gifts to the School for the fiscal year ending June 30, including $1.15 million allocated to the Annual Fund. We are thrilled to report that this brings the campaign total to $16.3 million in cash, pledges, and commitments, exceeding our original goal of $15 million. This success would not have been possible without the generous support of our alumni, parents, and friends. 

Thank you for your investment in Walnut Hill—Your support ensures the education of young artists remains “Front & Center.”
