The Wright Fund


Each fall UMS-Wright kicks off our annual giving campaign The Wright Fund, which is vital to the success of our school. As we celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of our school, we also celebrate the thousands of relationships we share with alumni and UMS-Wright family members who have through voluntary support allowed for a pattern of constant improvement at our school.  Please help our school continue to provide the best possible opportunities for our students and faculty by making a gift to The Wright Fund.  Whether your gift is large or small, every bit helps! For more information on how to give, contact Julie Otts at | 251-470-9039 or Worth Hieronymus at | 251-470-9023 or click here to download a pledge card.

GIVE DAY - ARPIL 30, 2019


We need your help with The Wright Fund as the school year comes to a close! We are striving to increase participation among parents and alumni, and we are asking for gifts of ANY amount – small gifts add up to make a big impact for our students and faculty.


Here’s how. It’s not too late:

  1. Visit to make a gift online!
  2. Print a pledge card and mail your check to the school at 65 Mobile Street, Mobile, Alabama  36607.
  3. Once you have given help us encourage others by following the 3 steps below.


If you have given, we thank you! Please join us on April 30 and show us “Your Wright Path” by following the steps below:

  1. Post a picture of your favorite memory from JTW, UMS or UMS-W on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.  It can be of you, your children or your family from way back when or just yesterday!
  2. Tag and challenge 3 friends (fellow parents and classmates) to donate to The Wright Fund.
  3. On Social Media be sure to tag @UMSWright and use the hashtag #thisismyWRIGHTpath


We will keep you updated throughout GIVE DAY on our progress, and we will make our final announcement on May 7th!

All Parents who participate will be entered in a drawing for a $100 Valley Services credit to the cafeteria and all Alumni who participate will be entered in for a drawing for a UMS-Wright hat! 

Thank you for your support!
