Free Money for Oakwood


Log into your Amazon account, go to Settings, click on Amazon Smile, add “The Oakwood School” as your charity, turn your phone / device to “ON” and start shopping! A portion of every eligible purchase will be credited to our school! It’s FREE money for Oakwood and easy to use. You will need to update these settings twice a year for Oakwood to continue receiving these funds.


Go to the Harris Teeter Together in Education website, register your VIC card to The Oakwood School #3523, and start shopping. Every time you get groceries at Harris Teeter, Oakwood will receive a small portion of the sale! Make sure to re-link your VIC card every year.

Sign up on BTFE.COM and add Oakwood as your school. “Scan” your receipt instead of clipping! If you do have Box Tops clips, send them in a plastic bag to school with your student to give to the Main Office.

A Culture of Philanthropy


A vibrant culture of philanthropy has sustained our ability to fulfill Oakwood’s mission for 20 years.

Together we help every student attain his or her personal best. Tuition, of course, plays the largest role in our ability to serve students; yet, it only covers 93% of our annual budget.

We are fortunate to have widespread support for the school’s top giving priority — the Annual Fund — which benefits every student, in every classroom, every day. The Fund is critical to the school’s operating budget and is the reason we so deeply appreciate broad participation from our entire Oakwood community: parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and staff, parents of alumni, and friends of the school.

The Annual Blue Jean Ball Auction & Gala and our Corporate Partners contribute to operations and special projects enhancing the Oakwood experience for our students.

Also important to the school’s short- and long-term sustainability are gifts to restricted and capital projects, as well as endowment and scholarship funds. These gifts support the facilities, infrastructure, and programs necessary to deliver a 21st century learning experience.

These combined philanthropic efforts and the generosity of our school community help provide our students with an exceptional educational experience and opportunities that go far beyond the classroom ensuring that Oakwood graduates are ready to thrive in college and beyond.
