Be a Good Apple 2020

This campaign ended on October 02, 2020, but you can still make a gift to The Orchard School by clicking here!

We are kicking off the year again with our "Be a Good Apple" Campaign! Please consider an early gift to the Owl Fund, previously known as Annual Giving

The Owl Fund, previously known as Annual Giving, provides the essential unrestricted dollars needed to enhance the educational experience at Orchard and allows us to provide our students with all the unique opportunities that make Orchard so special.  

Now more than ever, we are so grateful for our community's generosity. At a time when everything feels uncertain, we find comfort and encouragement knowing how much the Orchard community cares. While much of the world has stopped, we are incredibly lucky to have such a generous community who, even in the face of uncertain times, have remained unwavering in support of our school. It does not go unnoticed and it plays a vital role in fulfilling our mission, “to develop and educate the whole child”. 

Here's how you can help:


As we embark on this new school year, The Orchard School is a unique experience, and your participation to enhance that experience is one of extreme importance. A personal commitment from every family outside of tuition dollars (large or small), is incredibly impactful. We hope you will consider a gift during our “Be a Good Apple" campaign. Dollars raised during this time will support costs that most directly impact students such as technology, classroom supplies, academic support, plays, and opportunities to continue Orchard traditions that maintain COVID-19 guidelines. 


Become an advocate on GiveCampus and help us spread the word by encouraging your friends and family to give a gift to Orchard.


Last year, Mr. Weaver crushed his competition in an epic Orchard apple bobbing contest. If we reach our goal of 300 donors by Friday, October 2, we will unlock the second annual apple bobbing contest video in celebration of reaching our goal.

Donate now and help spread the word so we can see if anyone can beat Mr. Weaver this year.

Thank you for helping us kick off the 2020-2021 Owl Fund and cheers to an exciting and successful school year!
