What is Webb Giving Day?
Webb Giving Day is a celebration of William H. Webb’s giving spirit and all members of the Webb family who have followed in his footsteps through their support. Through his extraordinary generosity, our founder redefined the concept of “paying it forward”. With the help of our student ambassadors – the ultimate beneficiaries of your gifts – this celebration helps promote success in Webb’s Annual Fund, the foundation of giving to Webb.
We invite alumni, trustees, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends to tune in during the month of May. You should expect to hear from our students; they are grateful for your support!
Webb’s fourth annual Giving Day is culminated by announcements on Friday, May 19, 2017, during Webb’s Homecoming week. On this day, we will announce progress toward our Annual Fund goals and deliver a special message from the students.

“Thank you so much for your support of Webb Institute from all of us who attend this amazing school. It is overwhelming to see the power that our alumni and benefactors have in changing the many lives that wander these ornate halls. As a born-and-raised maritime fanatic from the vastly-nautical state of Illinois, I can honestly say that I have been offered the opportunity of a lifetime.
The experiences and knowledge that I have collected thus far in my three years at Webb far surpass any that I could have ever imagined as a child. From designing ferries for major U.S. cities to sailing across Europe on an LNG tanker, I have truly broadened my horizons during my time here.
Only through the generosity of the Webb family can this amazing institution continue to thrive. Webb’s exclusiveness, quality of education, and integrity require a strong support group to maintain a sustainable system. We are glad that you are a part of this support group and I too look forward to doing my part to ensure that the future of this school, and its students, is bright.”

“When I was little, I dreamed that I would travel the world, exploring new places and learning new things. However, being from a depressed railroad town in Pennsylvania, as I grew up I came to believe that my dream was unlikely to happen. Enrolling at Webb allowed me to re-imagine my childhood “delusions” as my new reality.
