While the Woodlawn Annual Fund supplements tuition fees and enables Woodlawn to meet its operational budget each year, capital giving allows the school to grow through special projects and facility construction and enhancements. Woodlawn has held two capital campaigns - one in 2007 to help fund an upper school classroom building and gymnasium, and another in 2010 to help build a classroom building and multipurpose room and kitchen. In each of these campaigns, donors pledged gifts over a three-year period - all gifts were used to pay for construction costs of the facilities.
The 2007 Capital Campaign helped fund the first major building project on Woodlawn’s 61-acre campus. Woods Hall, the Red Barn and a 2,000-foot paved road were built as a result of this campaign. We broke ground on this project in the summer of 2007 and opened the new facilities in August of 2008.
The 2010 Capital Campaign enabled the construction of Van Buren Hall, the Lodge. Renovations to the soccer field were also part of this effort. Construction for this project began in May of 2010 and was completed in October of the same year.
