|'Blazers Fund Breakdown|
Woodlawn's history of annual giving began back in 2002, our inaugural year. We were small then — just seven students to start and ending with 17 in June of 2003. That year and every year that followed, we relied on our community — current parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends — to help us live our school's mission.
Your tax-deductible gifts touch all aspects of Woodlawn, from financial aid to professional development, arts to technology, academic programming, and athletics by providing direct funding for educational initiatives that tuition alone does not cover. Monies from the ‘Blazers Fund are discretionary and can be applied where the school needs them most to support our interdisciplinary project-based learning curriculum where students are engaged both inside and outside of the classroom.
To produce independent lifelong learners who are responsible, contributing members of a diverse global society.
Many thanks to our Woodlawn family for once again supporting the school through the ‘Blazers Fund - by your cash donations and by your participation in the silent and live auctions at our annual Green and White Gala. This support is an essential part of ensuring that our students have the best possible educational experience, and that we continue to fulfill our mission as an independent school.
This past year, we incorporated a new element into our Gala - the Fund-a-Need for classroom wishlists. The generosity of the Gala attendees was evident as we surpassed the $20,000 goal for funding these wishlists within just a few minutes. It’s amazing to be part of a community that is so dedicated to the success of our students and faculty.
Another testament to this dedicated support is the increased participation that we observed in the ‘Blazers Fund - from 100% faculty/staff participation to huge increases in alumni and grandparent/friends participation. We are already working on building on this momentum in the 2018-19 school year, and I look forward to joining with you to making this year’s ‘Blazers Fund even more successful.
