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. This year, our Annual Fund 100-Day Campaign efforts will focus on three main areas where donations will be directed:

→Supporting the dynamic Oakwood educational experience through expanded academic offerings, as well as enhanced arts, athletics, and STEM opportunities.
→Recruiting and retaining world-class faculty who share their passionate expertise with our students each day.
→Creating programs that align with our mission-driven student learning outcomes.
Because of its dramatic impact on our students, the Annual Fund 100-Day 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 current families, our staff, 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. 
This year’s campaign ends on December 31st. We ask that each family contributes at a level that is meaningful to you. 

Please contact if you have questions or would like to participate in supporting the Annual Fund. Thank you!
