Our school is a family, whose lives and love span over 60 years. The mission of our Office of Advancement is to foster our family's growth and strength by promoting the following goals every day:
- Plant a seed of life-long belonging in the heart of every student who attends Archbishop Williams
- Bring graduates of Archbishop Williams closer to our school
- Build life-long relationships between our school and our Board of Trustees
- Build life-long relationships between our school and our Parent Support Group
- Build life-long relationships between our school and our community
What is the Williams Fund?
The Williams Fund raises unrestricted dollars that directly support the operating budget of the school. The unrestricted funds are added to the general fund of the school's budget for use in:
- Meeting current operating expenses
- Maintaining the physical plant
- Enhancing the student programs and services
Traditionally, strong institutions have strong Annual Funds. Catholic secondary schools should be no different than any other school, college or university. An annual gift to the operating budget is a tangible vote of confidence in our school's total program.
What are Giving Societies
Giving Societies are a method or approach to securing a number of gifts at all levels. If our Williams Fund is to be successful, we believe it must reflect the balance between leadership gifts and broad participation. These various societies were formed to encourage donors to feel a sense of affinity with Archbishop Williams as members of a particular society while also hoping they may increase their gifts. Through heightened recognition, they give our generous donors a sense of belonging to something special.
Our fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30 every year.
