Ways to Give

As a tuition-free institution, the Bishop Walker School is funded through the generosity of the philanthropic community. We receive our funding from individuals, parishes, foundations, and corporations. There are numerous ways to get involved and support the school's mission, from making a gift to volunteering as a Lunch Buddy. Every gift is appreciated and every gift counts.


Please make checks payable to Bishop Walker School and mail to:

Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys
Development Office 
1801 Mississippi Avenue, SE 
Washington, DC 20020


With a gift of appreciated stock, you avoid the tax burden of capital gains and receive a tax deduction for the fully appreciated amount. For information on how to make a stock gift, email Stephen Crochet, Development Director or call 202-591-3074. 


Matching gifts from your employer can double or triple the size of your gift!
Contact your Human Resources department to see if your contribution to the Bishop Walker School qualifies for a matching gift. 


You can help significantly by investing in our students’ education. By sponsoring one or more boys during their time at the Bishop Walker School, you guarantee that these students receive the education and support they need to become confident and capable citizens.

The Bishop Walker School is a tuition-free independent Episcopal school. We fund the school budget–– at $20,000 per student––entirely through the generosity of individuals, foundations, and organizations that feel passionately about our mission.
