Excellence. Character. Opportunity.

We love these three words. As a Woodward Academy alumni, grandparent, parent or friend, we trust that you recognize how important they are to our community. After all, they are the core values the school was founded on in 1900 and what made Woodward Academy a world-class institution today, some 115 years later. Those who study at Woodward are taught to strive for excellence, have good moral character in all endeavors and afford themselves of the wonderful educational opportunities the school has to offer.

Ensuring the future of Woodward for the next century and beyond is a priority and one that can’t be accomplished without the support of those who hold these values dear. There are ways to make gifts to Woodward beyond immediate support that are outlined on the following pages.

We highlight some options—planned gifts—that are available to you. For example:

  • A few feature income to you or your loved ones during retirement.
  • Others offer tax benefits that can be realized now or in the future.
  • An easy way to invest in Woodward through your retirement account.
  • Including a bequest to Woodward Academy in your will or trust is a simple way to make a lasting impact on future generations of students.
