Welcome from the Development Office

Since The Oakridge School's beginning in 1979, the tradition of giving and remarkable legacy of philanthropic support has always been important. That tradition of giving continues today as families, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends support the school in its development efforts.  Those closest to the school, who have benefited most from what it offers students and the community, provide continued philanthropic support, affirming the school’s mission.

Gifts allow the school to start new programs, and also help strengthen existing ones. Gifts make financial aid available to qualified students and promote the work of Oakridge’s dedicated faculty and staff.  Your gifts help us support the mission of the school "To inspire students to seek their full potential in academics, the arts, and athletics in a challenging and nurturing environment that cultivates social responsibility, mutual respect, and personal integrity". These gifts provide opportunities for professional development, technology improvements, athletic supplies, fine arts improvements, and student leadership training.

Participation by the entire Oakridge community is the key to our continued success.  We would be pleased to visit with you about the different ways that your giving can enrich the Oakridge experience. Your gifts and involvement make Oakridge extraordinary.

Thank you for helping make Oakridge a special place.
