Annual Giving

Annual Giving is the heart of the school's fundraising efforts in which every family is asked to provide an annual donation to the school. All donations through Annual Giving are used for one of the five Annual Giving Funds, each supporting one of the five specific areas of focus at the school. Proceeds from the school's special events also go to support these funds.

Donors can select which fund they would like their donation to benefit, or they can allow the school to choose which fund has the greatest need. Even when "greatest need" is designated, all funds donated through Annual Giving will go to one of the five funds and are not used for the school's basic operation.

Donors can make a donation online via our secure giving webpage.

Oakwood asks that all families participate in the school's fundraising efforts. The goal is for each family to donate each year to the Annual Giving Program and participate in fundraising events as they feel they would like to and are able to do so. Some give a little and some give more as circumstances differ, and every donation is very much appreciated. Broad participation is a critical goal and an important sign of support for the school.

Book of Gratitude

Because of the incredible generosity of parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends, Oakwood ended the 2018-2019 fundraising year with success. We are grateful that so many members of the Oakwood family make giving to the school a priority. Your support ensures the school continues to grow and thrive across the board. For that, and for all that you do for Oakwood, we thank you!
