The Webb Fund

Webb School has been built with the support of its families, starting with our founders, Robert and Julie Webb, who acted on a vision and an idea in 1955. Your child will be the beneficiary of a legacy of your involvement.

A Message From the Webb Fund Co-Chairs

Dear Members of the Webb School Community-

Steven and I are honored to serve as this year’s Webb Fund chairs. As we begin our 63rd school year, Webb continues to be an exceptional educational institution constantly moving forward and growing. We are very excited to continue our support of the school.

Steven and I have three children at Webb, twin boys in their junior year and a daughter in eighth grade. As our children grow, we are grateful to Webb for the role it has played in shaping our children. Our children are engaged, confident teens with a love of learning and a curiosity toward life. Their enthusiasm towards school is largely attributable to the outstanding faculty and staff at Webb. This wonderful group of people recognizes and encourages each student’s strengths and also makes each year unique, challenging and full of learning adventures.

Through the Webb Fund, programs are strengthened and faculty and staff are provided with the tools necessary for students to learn at the highest level both inside and outside of the classrooms. All independent schools are faced with this same need - to make up the difference between costs and tuition.

The Webb Fund is the cornerstone of all giving and supports the ongoing day-to-day operational expenses of the School. It allows us to attract and retain talented faculty; provide exceptional academic, arts and athletic programs; and offer meaningful scholarship opportunities.

We hope that you, as key members of the Webb community, will support your children’s school by making a contribution to the Webb Fund. If all families make Webb one of their philanthropic priorities, the school will continue to flourish for years to come.

Thank you for your time and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Planned Giving

The Webb Fund Planned Giving

Webb School of Knoxville encourages planned gifts as a way to provide resources for the future of the school. In many cases, a deferred gift enables a donor to leave more in his/her estate plan for loved ones and make a more significant contribution than would be possible through an outright gift. These gifts are invested in the school’s endowment and last in perpetuity to benefit current and future generations of students and faculty.

Webb School has been the fortunate beneficiary of many generous endowment fund contributions. Endowment gifts provide a permanent way to support the school today and in the future. Contributions to the endowment can be made to honor or memorialize a loved one, beloved faculty member, or student. Webb currently has several endowed funds established to support excellence in teaching, financial aid for deserving students, and support of specific academic programs.

Webb School of Knoxville has established a legacy recognition club, called The Principes Society. We invite you to join this special group of friends who have included Webb School in their estate plans. Members of The Principes Society are recognized and celebrated annually.

If you are interested in joining The Principes Society, please contact Hugh Nystrom, Director of Development, at hugh_nystrom@webbschool.org or call (865) 291-3837.
