The Red Oaks School Annual Fund
Red Oaks is a school where children are more than accepted, they are celebrated for who they are and for their potential to become fearless learners and innovative leaders. Our faith in them, in concert with dynamic curriculum and inspired teaching, leads to self-motivation, academic achievement, social and personal growth.
Education like this is priceless, but it isn’t free. Each year the costs of our extraordinary programs outweigh our tuition income by 15%. This is typical for all non-profits.
The Red Oaks School Annual Fund supports every aspect of your child’s experience. Your important gift keeps our community strong and united in enabling our children to meet an increasingly complex and global future.
For your convenience, donations and pledge payments can be made in a variety of ways.
Send a check directly to the school. Use the Annual Fund gift envelope that you received to your home in the recent Annual Fund mailing. Checks should be made payable to "The Red Oaks School".
For your convenience you may donate online at www.redoaksschool.org/donate
