About the 'Blazers Fund
The ‘Blazers Fund provides resources so that we can deliver on our mission every day. Gifts from generous donors like you provide direct funding for educational initiatives that tuition alone does not cover, and each gift is an investment in the education of every child at Woodlawn School. While tuition income is carefully budgeted to meet anticipated needs each year, monies from the ‘Blazers Fund are discretionary and can be applied where the school needs them most to support our interdisciplinary Project-Based Learning curriculum where students are engaged both inside and outside of the classroom.
With the help of the ‘Blazers Fund, we are able to attract and support a fantastic staff of talented teachers and administrators. The ‘Blazers Fund allows our teachers to continue being lifelong learners through professional development opportunities that train and inspire them to give our students the best learning experience possible. Additionally, the ‘Blazers Fund helps us to care for our one-of-a-kind campus and grants assistance to families experiencing financial challenges to keep their children a part of our community. Together with the contributions of all of us, the 'Blazers Fund empowers and enables us to support the Woodlawn experience that we all love.

It takes each of us to support what you L❤VE.
We invite our families and friends to support Woodlawn’s academic excellence at a level that demonstrates their pride in being part of the Woodlawn community and that is appropriate for each family. The strength of the Woodlawn ‘Blazers Fund comes from collective giving: one donor’s gift of $100, together with another’s gift of $1,000, and still another’s of $10,000, has an incredible impact on the Woodlawn student experience. Gifts of all sizes will be appreciatively received, used to improve our project-based learning environment, and acknowledged in our annual report.
Your gift to the Woodlawn 'Blazers Fund can help us attract support from outside organizations.
When we approach corporations, foundations, and other friends of Woodlawn for gifts, they ask us about the voluntary support provided by Woodlawn’s own community before deciding how and whether to support our school. They want to know that our own families support our work. A high participation rate from Woodlawn’s community is critical to receiving external funding, so every gift makes a difference.
