Membership of The American Friends of Winchester College (AFWC) is open to all OWs, parents and past parents living in North America.

The mission of the AFWC is to facilitate communication between the School and OWs in America, to provide a focal point for the community of OWs in America and in addition, to raise funds supporting a range of projects including bursaries and the renovation of the School’s ancient buildings.

If you would like to become more involved with the American Friends group, you may contact directly either Patti White or Mary Emerson.  Your suggestions and comments are extremely valuable and we should like to hear from you.

Donors who pay tax in the USA can give tax efficiently via the AFWC by donating online or by downloading a donation form.
