Your Donation Matters

The goal of this year’s Pledge Drive is to raise $85,000. This will help us ensure that the Ecology program lives on at Waters while continuing to support teachers and families during remote learning. A $250 donation from each Waters family would help us reach this goal, but donations in any amount get us closer.

Donate on November 12 or 13 and be entered to win a Solo Stove to make socially distanced outdoor entertaining a bit more comfortable and enjoyable this winter.

Donate $750 or more during the entire pledge drive and be entered to win a $250 gift certificate to Gather, one of Lincoln Square's coziest and most delicious restaurants.

It has been a difficult year, but it is important to remember that we are a community. We are in this together!
