Alumni Plaza

Be a part of Oakwood Alumni History - and the New Alumni Plaza!

Rendering of proposed Alumni Plaza

Thanks to a matching grant and the generosity of our alumni, the Oakwood Schools Foundation is constructing an Alumni Plaza by the south entrance of Oakwood Jr. High on E. Schantz Ave. This heavily traveled area will become a functional space for community gatherings, performances, outdoor classroom space and much more.

While donations of any amount are accepted and appreciated, classes that raise at least $1,000 will be recognized on the plaza.  Individuals who donate $500 or more will receive an engraved brick on the Alumni Plaza. 

Any donation made by an individual will also go toward the class(es) of the individual's choice, divided as desired. For example, a graduate of the Class of 1993 with two children in Oakwood Schools gives a $500 donation.  This gift could be split between the three classes or allocated to one class, at the discretion of the donor.

The Oakwood Schools Foundation and Oakwood City Schools will recognize our generous contributors as follows:

Platinum $10,000 and up
Gold $  5,000 to $9,999
Blue $  2,500 to $4,999
Lumberjack $  1,000 to $2,499
Friend $     500 to $   999

To be a part of this one-time opportunity, donations must be received by Dec. 31, 2018. We hope you will consider making a donation to honor your child's class (and/or your class if you are an alumnus).   

To make a donation, submit a check or donate online and complete the Alumni Plaza Donation Form.  If you will be receiving an engraved brick for your donation, you will need to complete the Brick Information Form in addition to the Alumni Plaza Donation Form.
