Winfield has a long proud history of great musical education. Because of this, when the USD 465 Foundation was created in the 1980’s, its first goal was to raise funds for our Music Department. With the guidance and work done by our original board and the generosity of our graduates and friends that original fundraising effort raised $30,000.
The foundation now has multiple music funds:
- Choir Fund
- Orchestra fund
- WHS Band fund
- Musical Instrument Repair Fund
- Bernstorf-Frazier Memorial Endowment*
*In 2012, a generous gift from Jane Frazier allowed the Foundation to create this fund to support the string sections of the high school orchestra. It also provided funds that refurbished the Steinway piano at the high school.
