How Much of a Difference Can My Gift Make?
An independent school has many fewer supporters than a university or a large charity does. Because the number who will give is small and the need is large, every gift counts more. This reasoning leads many families and friends to make The Oakwood School their philanthropic priority. They know their gift is an investment that truly pays off.
Why Should We Give?
Many people take pride in the recognition that comes with appearing on the list of Oakwood's supporters. Others enjoy being involved with fund raising activities, because it lets them make social contacts. Some view giving as a way to become active stakeholders who help Oakwood achieve its goals. And finally, unlike tuition payments, gifts to Oakwood are tax deductible.
