Big Cheese 2022-2023

Waterloo's annual giving campaign

Support Student Growth!

Big Cheese is Waterloo's annual fundraising campaign to support and advance Waterloo's unique, student-growth-focused education.

This campaign is about parents and teachers talking and sharing and working together to build a school our kids need and deserve.

We’re investing in people

Big Cheese is not just about raising money — it's about making a real impact. But how do we do that?

Earlier this fall, our families hosted gatherings to share what is making the biggest impact in their students’ lives right now. Our priorities for this campaign come directly out of those conversations. What came through repeatedly was one single theme:

The best way to have a lasting influence on quality education is to invest in the teachers who deliver it.

So this year’s biggest priority is investing in our faculty: supporting our current faculty and recruiting and hiring new faculty for the continued growth and excellence of the school.

We’re investing in our kids’ futures

Ultimately, investing in teachers means investing in our kids' futures. When they leave school and enter the real world, they should be able to say, “this looks familiar; we practiced for this.”

Big Cheese 2022-23 will also equip our teachers with labs, equipment, and spaces to provide real-world skills and experiences for our students.

Let’s raise some cheddar together!

The Big Cheese is about building Waterloo together. Gifts of all sizes help us meet our goals, and we want you to be a part of this exciting new chapter! Every gift makes a difference.

For those who have the means, will you consider a gift of $1500, $2000, $5000, or more?

Or course, all contributions are tax-deductible.
