Waterfield Sotheby's International Realty Partners with WFEE to Support Education
Every home sold by the Winchester office of Waterfield Sotheby’s International Realty results in a donation to the Winchester Foundation for Educational Excellence, WFEE. Not only does the company donate a percentage of every commission to WFEE, real estate agents Stephanie McGowan, Anne Spry and Katie Tully are Business Ambassadors who donate a percentage of their personal commissions.
“We believe strong schools build strong communities and do nothing but increase the value of our town’s real estate.”
- Anne Spry, Owner, Waterfield Sotheby’s International Realty
“I think WFEE plays an integral role in the success of Winchester’s public school system. As parents, we chose the Winchester Public School system for our children. I have seen the positive impact of many WFEE grants. Those grants encourage teachers to think creatively. WFEE is able to provide significant funding so its grants touch every student in our community. Waterfield Sotheby's International Realty believes a partnership with WFEE is the best way we can give back to Winchester.”
WFEE is proud to partner with Waterfield Sotheby's International Realty. We appreciate the company’s generosity and applaud their recognition of the relationship between a strong housing market and excellent schools.

Classic craftsmanship combined with 21st century technology
Don and Elyse Foote raised their family in Winchester, sending three children through the public schools. As a businessman, he considers generous gifts to WFEE a good investment.
"I support WFEE because it is a professional run organization that thinks deeply about how best to use organization resources to invest intelligently in our schools. Their grants are investments in our community, and in the future of our town."
The Winchester Savings Bank has supported WFEE since 2000, acting as a sponsor of the WFEE Trivia Bee and partnering with WFEE to present a Speaker and Workshop Series at Winchester High School, highlighting those who work at the intersection of art and technology.
“We understand how important strong schools are to the fabric of the community. One reason Winchester Public Schools are so extraordinary is that educators are constantly challenging our students. The CTC Workshop and Lecture Series has taken that challenge to new levels.”
- Peter Segerstrom, WSB President and CEO
WSB's $30,000 gift supporting powerED UP! helped to ensure integration of technology into Winchester's public schools. Strength, service and community are the core values of this institution which has been a part of Winchester for 145 years.
