This year, we are revamping our Annual Fund program and introducing a 100 Day Campaign! It is our hope that we will achieve 100% participation from parents, staff, and our board in 100 days. Our efforts will culminate on December 31st. You may pledge now and pay through June 30, 2020.

Our focus again this year will be on the Campus Fund, which enables us to continue the ongoing efforts in support of our campus expansion. Though we have come so far in a short period of time with the completion of the Gwendolyn Riches Liberal Arts Center, there is still work to be done on our new Upper School Gymnasium.

The Annual Fund 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 the Annual Fund are used for one of the five designations below, each supporting a specific area of focus at the school. Proceeds from the school's special events also go to support these funds.


The best independent schools benefit from a strong culture of annual giving. Your participation encourages others to give and demonstrates to the entire Oakwood community that you believe in the school and are invested in our success, right alongside us. Please reference the above brochure to learn about the many ways you can participate and leave your family’s mark on the campus.

Thank you in advance for making Oakwood School one of your philanthropic priorities. Your support truly makes a difference.

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 Fund 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, no matter the amount, is very much appreciated. Broad participation is a critical goal and an important sign of support for the school.

Donors can make a donation online via our secure giving page. Any questions about Oakwood fundraising can be directed to .


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!
