Why Give?

Your Annual Fund gifts make a difference

Your Annual Fund gifts make so much possible. Along with tuition and fees, the Annual Fund provides vital unrestricted resources that are essential to every aspect of our Oakwood students' experience. Your gifts to the Annual Fund contribute to fostering a sense of community and shared responsibility. The Annual Fund brings together all members of our beloved Oakwood family including faculty & staff, parents & guardians, alumni, parents of alumni, and grandparents for the benefit of our students. We thank you in advance for providing students with meaningful academic, social, artistic, and athletic experiences, while also ensuring that all students benefit from all Oakwood has to offer, regardless of their financial means.

Those who contribute $10k+ in combined giving annually are recognized as members of the Head of School Circle.


Immediate Use Funding

Immediate Use Funding is for a restricted purpose. These Annual Fund gifts are used during the year in which they are received. They may be designated for specific areas of the school or programs like Financial Assistance or Support Services and start at $50,000.

Special Event for Financial Assistance

Net proceeds from The Special Event benefit financial assistance now and into the future, covering costs such as tuition, meals, bussing, books, laptops, and more. Your support opens doors and creates opportunities by providing access to an Oakwood education for elementary and secondary families from all socioeconomic backgrounds.
