WDS Community Volunteer Grant

WDS Community Volunteer Grant

For families applying to Kindergarten-8th Grade
Grant Award: $15,000 over two years
Fundamental to the mission statement of Westchester Day School is that "First and foremost, a WDS student is a mensch. Our students conduct themselves with dignity and respect for themselves and others. They have a strong sense of right and wrong and are guided to be ethical in their lives".  

A critical component to being a WDS mensch is having a sensitivity to the needs of others and the drive to be an upstander who says "how can I help?".  The Westchester Day School Community Volunteer Grant aims to give back to the local Westchester community with a pledge of at least 75 hours of volunteer time per year.
