Fundraising Proceeds

Thank you to the many donors who supported our fundraising efforts through our three main fundraising events this past year. Your generosity continues to play an important role in all aspects of our school community.




Fundraising Dollars at Work

The Annual Fund is the heart of every independent school's philanthropic efforts in which every family is asked to provide an annual donation to the school. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation from our current families, faculty, staff, and board. Donations made through the Annual Fund may be designated by the donor to go to any one of the below funds. Proceeds from school fundraising events go to one or more of the five funds.

Greatest Need

Most donations are given "unrestricted" for the school's greatest needs, meaning the donation will go toward one or more of the five funds, depending on needs that arise each school year.

Campus Fund

Supports upgrades to our campus and safety. The 2022-2023 Campus Fund helped fund playground & blacktop updates, and a new projector system in The Barn.

Scholarship Fund

Helps us build our fund to enhance the socio-economic diversity of our community. The 2022-2023 Scholarship Fund helped give deserving students access to an Oakwood education.

Enrichment Fund

Used to enhance the school's enrichment programs. The 2022-2023 Enrichment Fund helped purchase lower school ukulele set & racks, upper school music instruments, 50 Melody Music Chairs, and a dry ice fog machine (drama).

Science & Technology Fund

Strengthens and expands the school's technology and science resources. The 2022-2023 Science & Technology Fund helped purchase equipment to work with LabQuest 3 interfaces for the physics lab, an Epson SureColor 44" P8000 SE printer, and cameras & equipment for photography & yearbook.

Faculty Fund

Supports faculty development and enhances compensation. The 2022-2023 Faculty Fund helped provide faculty and staff professional development opportunities.

My Story »

Jeff Ruster, Jr.

“Although my career here is young, it’s unmistakably clear: every aspect of my growth, from being a student to evolving as an individual, my choice of college, and eventually transitioning into an educational career, all owe their beginnings to a singular moment—the pivotal decision of Oakwood’s admissions department to take a chance on me back in 2013.”

My Story »

Kelli Frazer

P ’21
“The support, camaraderie, generosity, spirit, and connections that I have because of Oakwood are invaluable to me both personally and professionally.”​

My Story »

Oakwood School

Full Circle

The Wilmot family attended an Oakwood School Open House in March 2010 where Macy Hanson Sorensen served as their tour guide. Among all the sights they encountered, Macy left the most lasting impression on them. Her confidence, articulate communication skills, and evident passion for her school stood out. Little did they know, this encounter would mark the beginning of a remarkable journey. Soon after, Dr. Wilmot became Macy’s science teacher in high school, finding her an enjoyable and dedicated student.

Subsequently, Macy pursued higher education and embarked on a career as an educator. In a heartening turn of events, she returned to Oakwood in 2022, taking on the role of Lower School Music Teacher where she shares her musical knowledge with the youngest Wilmot, and continuing the connection that began in 2010.

Our Donors

We are grateful to the members of the Oakwood School community who contributed during the 2022-2023 school year. Every gift has a direct impact on the lives of our students, faculty, and staff and has enhanced our academic, arts, science and technology, and athletic programs.

The report lists gifts received between July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023. Every effort has been made to ensure that all of our donors are listed accurately.

Make your Gift Today

Unlike many private schools, Oakwood does not ask donors to pay for the base operation of the school. Donated funds are used exclusively to enhance and grow the school and its programs through the five Annual Fund designations. As a non-profit corporation, there are no profits or dividends for shareholders or owners. When school revenue exceeds expenses, these funds are reinvested in the school. Please consider supporting Oakwood by making a donation today!
