A letter from your 2023-24 Annual Fund Alumnae Captains




Dear Oakcrest Alumnae,

To announce the kickoff of this year’s Oakcrest Annual Fund, we ask for your help. In addition to being Co-Presidents of the Oakcrest Alumnae Association we are also taking the lead as Co-Captains of the Annual Fund for the alumnae community.  We are doing this because we understand how important our financial support of our alma mater is to strengthening the alumnae community.  When we make a sacrificial gift (no matter the size) to support Oakcrest we are connecting with hundreds of young women who are sharing the experience that benefitted each one of us.  
 
Our Oakcrest experience was one that formed us in a holistic, yet personal way.  When we support the Annual Fund we share in the intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual formation of young women who, like each of us, will take that experience and use it as a force for good in society. Oakcrest’s academic and character curriculum promote a spirit of curiosity, adventure, virtue, and service. The new McGowan Family Athletic Center is building on a history of athletic excellence which many of us enjoyed.  Our music and performing arts programs continue to inspire beauty and creativity. In addition, our dedicated Oakcrest faculty are pursuing ongoing professional development so they can serve and inspire students even better in the coming years.
 
None of this would be possible without the ongoing generosity of Oakcrest alumnae, parents, and the broader Oakcrest community to the Annual Fund. Thanks to the success of the Annual Fund last year we were able to provide free textbooks for our entire student body, added an auxiliary practice field for soccer and lacrosse and provided transportation to student experiences such as the 8th grade Old Rag Hike, tours of the Museum of the Bible, and experiential field trips to Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. We also continue to receive increased requests for Tuition Assistance (TA).  The Annual Fund is a critical source in support of TA and, thanks to your generosity, Oakcrest can meet the needs of Oakcrest families with unforeseen financial difficulties.
 
Tuition at Oakcrest only covers about 85% of an Oakcrest education each year for all students, and unlike public or parochial schools, Oakcrest does not receive supplemental finances from the government or any diocese. Because of this Oakcrest counts on the success of the Annual Fund to ensure all students thrive.
 
This year our target for the Annual Fund is to raise $450,000. Our alumnae goal is $30,000. Please consider joining us as we contribute to your alma mater’s current and future success. You can be certain that your gift to the Annual Fund will help girls, their families, their teachers, their mentors – the people who will support and be there for them throughout their time at Oakcrest and beyond.
 
Warm regards,

P.S. If your place of work offers matching grants, please consider requesting a grant for Oakcrest. It is a great way to double the impact of your gift.
