school development

The Annual Giving Fund is a yearly fund-raising effort to help defray Oak Lane’s annual operating costs. Most of these gifts are unrestricted, which means that the donor allows the school to determine the areas of the budget that are most in need of additional funding. Because tuition alone does not fully cover the expenses incurred over the course of a school year, Annual Giving bridges the gap between tuition income and expenses. With a successful Annual Giving Fund, Oak Lane can continue to provide an enriched program for our children. Oak Lane has benefited in the past from a variety of restricted gifts including new windows and doors, roof repair, a new playground, a school sign on the corner of our property, a stage set and sound system for school productions, and a new water fountain. Carpeting in the classrooms, soccer goal cages and an automated library card catalog system have all been gifts to Oak Lane directly benefiting our students.
