Thanks for supporting Give Green Day!
What is Give Green Day?
Give Green Day is WRA’s fourth annual community day of giving.
We want to hear from you! Give Green Day’s tagline is “Appreciate. Participate. Celebrate!” so tell us why you support and appreciate WRA by sharing your love on social media. Tell us your story! Who impacted you? How did Reserve make a difference in your life? Share a throwback photo of your WRA crew. Tag us @WesternReserveAcademy on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn and @WRApioneers on Twitter to help spread the word and motivate others to give back on March 9 as well. Don’t forget to include #GiveGreenDay and wra.net/givegreenday in your post!
Be among the first 250 donors who support The WRA Fund on March 9, and you will receive a pair of fun WRA socks. Wear them with pride!

Why does WRA need to raise money?
Tuition accounts for 68% of WRA’s annual operating budget. Like other private schools, the remainder is funded by philanthropic gifts supporting the endowment and the annual fund (The WRA Fund). While endowment provides long-term financial stability for the school, The WRA Fund is the foundation of fundraising efforts, providing immediate resources that directly impact the educational experiences for our current students. The WRA Fund specifically supports 10% of the total operating budget which essentially translates to $6,875 per student!
Why does my participation matter?
While leadership level support is incredibly important to the continued growth of the school, participation by as many members of the community as possible is critical. The number of participants in The WRA Fund is a “vote of confidence” in the direction of the school and your belief in a WRA education. Making a gift to The WRA Fund is a sign of trust in the Academy and conveys enthusiasm. Please know that every dollar contributed to the Fund will immediately and positively impact the successes and experiences of WRA students and faculty. Also, the collective impact of gifts is significant. Last year for example, gifts up to $100 totaled over $38,000.
Why are you giving away Reserve socks?
Because you “keep us on our toes!”
Give Green Day coincides with Giving and Gratitude Week (March 6 - March 10), formerly Philanthropy Week, which is a time for WRA students, faculty and staff to celebrate and build upon the culture of philanthropy at Reserve. The students thank donors, and the senior class makes their first gift to the school. The students also show their WRA spirit, this year, wearing fun Reserve socks! Give Green Day is the community’s day to join the senior class in honoring the generosity that built WRA by participating in an annual day of giving. Don’t want to receive the socks after making your gift on March 9? Let us know by contacting us at email@example.com or 330.650.9701.
How can I donate crypto?
Make a gift through Bitcoin using this website. We accept 100+ other crypto processed on this page: wra.net/crypto. Crypto gifts donated on either site will count towards Give Green Day challenges.
Why is there a supporter goal of 441 donors?
Each Give Green Day, our community has raised the bar! Last year, 440 donors stepped up in support of this special day of giving which was 38 more than the year before. We love all the feels!
Can I make a gift before March 9 and have it count towards the challenges?
Absolutely! Gifts made on this site all count towards Give Green Day’s goals and challenges. Thank you for making an early gift!
Wish WAR a better future!
