Annual Fund

 

The Annual Fund is the heart of every independent school's philanthropic efforts in which each family is asked to provide an annual donation to the school and Oakwood is no different. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation from our current families, faculty, staff, and board.

Donations made through the Annual Fund may be designated by the donor to go to any one of the below funds. Most donations are given "unrestricted" for the school's greatest needs, meaning the donation will go toward one or more of the five funds, depending on need. Proceeds from school fundraising events go to one or more of the five funds.

Annual Fund Designations

Because of its dramatic impact on our students, the Annual Fund Campaign is the top fundraising priority of our school and participation in this effort is frequently used as a benchmark of our community's collective strength. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation from our current families, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, and board. Another way to help Oakwood is through matching gifts. Many companies will match donations to charitable organizations, doubling or tripling the impact of your gift to Oakwood. Check here to see if your company participates in a matching gifts program or contact your HR department for more details. 

We ask that each family contributes at a level that is meaningful to you.
