Giving to Oakhill

Philanthropy at Oakhill

I pay tuition. Why is it necessary to raise money for Oakhill?
80% of Oakhill's annual operating budget is generated through tuition.  The remaining 20% comes from philanthropy, specifically donations to the Mighty Oak Fund and special event sponsorships.  

Every gift received helps support key initiatives of Oakhill Day School.

The Mighty Oak Fund supports Oakhill Day School beyond our mission. Every gift received directly impacts the children of Oakhill Day School. Your generous gifts are applied to the school's top priorities, including:

  • Faculty development
  • Enrichment programs
  • Facilities maintenance
  • Financial assistance

Your generosity also buffers the impact of economic challenges, ensuring the school's financial stability and ongoing stewardship.

Oakhill Day School is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All gifts to the school are tax-deductible as allowable by law. For more information, please contact Director of Development Leslie Gasser, or call 816.436.6228.
