Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in supporting Oakwood School. We are fortunate to have a wonderful tradition of philanthropy from parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. This commitment to our school allows for the continued excellence and achievement that is the hallmark of an Oakwood education.

Like nearly every not-for-profit, independent school, Oakwood relies on annual fund gifts, capital campaigns, and event support to supplement tuition, bolster the scholarship program, enhance learning and extracurricular opportunities, and support construction and renovation projects. Donations are vital to the ongoing academic and financial health of the school.

Please see the many ways below that you can support Oakwood. Any questions about Oakwood fundraising can be directed to the Development Office at .

On behalf of the entire community, thank you for your generosity and participation in giving to Oakwood School!

Support Oakwood

Oakwood is active in its fundraising efforts which are supported by the Parent Service Auxiliary. There are several ways that families can donate to Oakwood.

Unlike most other schools, all funds donated to Oakwood go to enhancing the school and its programs, not to pay for the school base operations.
