The Woods Fund FAQs

Why give annually The Woods Fund?

Our generous culture of philanthropy depends on significant and unrestricted annual contributions to The Woods Fund from trustees, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, alumni, faculty and staff, corporations, foundations, and friends. Annual gifts to The Woods Fund support the people and programs that make The Woods exceptional.

What is the giving goal?

The goal is to raise $300,000.

What is the timeline?

In the fall each year, you will be asked to give but you can make a gift at any time. The Woods Academy's fiscal year runs from July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018. You can pledge now and make your gift later as long as it comes in before June 30, 2018. Many donors make a gift coinciding with calendar year-end to capture an annual tax benefit, use work bonuses to fund their gifts, or enhance their giving by securing a matching gift from their employer.

How much should I give?

Only you and your family can determine the appropriate amount. We ask that you be as generous as possible. We hope all families will participate and make The Woods Fund a philanthropic priority. Every gift makes a difference.
