Alumni Giving Club

In honor of Oakwood's 20th Anniversary, we invite all our alumni to make a gift of $20. Each alumni that makes a gift will be recognized on a published Oakwood donor list as well as have their name listed on our new Oakwood Alumni Giving Tree. We invite you to make your gift in honor of a faculty or staff member who had a meaningful impact on you while at Oakwood.

Oakwood's alumni are an integral part of our school's legacy. Alumni participation in the school's giving program is confirmation that you continue to believe in Oakwood and take pride in its mission and the value of the education you received during your time here.
