Welcome to the Wilson High School Alumni Foundation


Welcome to the Long Beach Wilson High School Alumni Foundation webpage.  Thanks for visiting!  As an alumnus, we welcome your donations towards our organization.  You can be sure that all funds go directly to the kids and programs at Wilson High School.

Since our inception in 2012, we are excited to report that we have gifted the school with $111,600.00 (as of May, 2019).  Our success is dependent on occasional events that we host, along with donations made on this site.

We recently hosted an event where we received our largest contribution to date! A big heartfelt thank you goes out to Mr. John Carlton, Class of 1963.  Mr. Carlton’s gift was very generous and is greatly appreciated!  With alumni like Mr. Carlton, we are sure proud to call ourselves Wilson Bruins!

Did you know our school will celebrate its 100 year anniversary in 2026??  Your continued support will help us do something big to commemorate this amazing milestone!

All funds raised support student activities and minor infrastructure improvements at the school for which public dollars are not provided.  Thus far, recent donations include funds for commencement (Wilson is the only school in Long Beach to host their commencement on campus).  Additionally, funds have gone towards campus beautification projects, grants for various teacher requests, student recognition items, heavy duty picnic tables campus-wide, the school’s music performance at Carnegie Hall, Grad Nite, equipment needs at the beautifully newly renovated auditorium and much more.

History:   Generations of successful, amazing, generous people have graduated from Wilson over the years…all very proud to call Wilson High School their Alma Mater. Since drastic budget cuts over the last decade have led to major cutbacks in every area of public schools, Wilson needs your help in funding student activities and campus enhancements to keep Wilson High School great. The Wilson High School Alumni Foundation was started in 2012 to facilitate this support and to keep alumni engaged by providing information, networking and social opportunities.

Mission statement: The Wilson High School Alumni Foundation is an organization of Wilson High School Alumni dedicated to supporting Woodrow Wilson Classical High School activities and programs that benefit the students’ social and academic experience. Its purpose is exclusively charitable.

Specifically, your tax-deductible donations will be used for student activities, such as graduation expenses (no funding whatsoever is provided by LBUSD), student formals/prom, student rallies and more. In addition, many unfunded site improvements are desired as Wilson approaches its 100-year anniversary.
