Please help us meet the challenge!

Dear Woodlawn Families,

Today I join the Annual Fund volunteers to not only reflect on the successes of the past year, but also to share some incredibly exciting news. First, a quick review of a terrific 2016-2017 year: 44 offers of admission for our ten seniors (with $1.32 million in merit scholarships!), two students headed to the National History Day national finals, two state championships for our Varsity Cross Country teams, construction on our new Track and Field complex, our highly successful Great Gatsby Gala Auction, our first Family Science Day, our first (sold out) dinner theatre production, national recognition – again – for the school yearbook, the stunning “Threads that Bind Us” public art display, eight Varsity swimmers who competed in the state championships, countless hours served by students working with area nonprofit organizations, and much, much more.

Additionally, this year we announced the appointment of Adam Schapiro as Head of School, effective July 1. We are looking forward to his leadership.

And now the exciting news: in honor of Adam’s upcoming start at Woodlawn, an anonymous family has issued a challenge for the 2015-2016 Woodlawn Annual Fund: they will donate $10,000 if we can raise $40,000 by graduation, June 7.

We invite you to become part of this community-wide effort. (Why give? Read more here.) What a wonderful way for us all to show our support and welcome for Adam as he joins the Woodlawn family.

With thanks,

J Robert Shirely, Ph.D.

Like other nonprofits you support, Woodlawn’s program fees – in our case, tuition – cover only part of annual expenses. The remainder is covered by additional income, primarily gifts from donors like you. Our students and teachers benefit from your generosity. Click here to learn more.
