Tuition covers only 95 percent of the operating budget. We need to make up the difference to pay the total expenses for:
- Salaries and Professional Development
- Athletic and Fine Arts Equipment
- Improvements to Classroom Technology and Classroom Supplies
- Student Financial Aid
- Utilities, Building Maintenance and Upkeep
Whether you’re a parent, an alumnus, grandparent, alumni parent, faculty or staff member, or friend, The Oakridge School Annual Fund is a significant way to show how much you value the excellent education, service and leadership skills Oakridge continues to provide young people. By giving generously, you set an example for others. A successful Annual Fund not only impacts the school but also increases endowment giving, capital gifts, and community support.
Increasing Your Donation through Matching Gift Programs
Many employers match gifts made by their current, as well as retired employees. This is a simple way to double - and sometimes even triple - your gift to The Oakridge School. Contact your employers or human resources office for the form needed to match your gift to Oakridge and let us know that a matching gift will be coming.
