About

Uncertain times require your support to maintain the integrity of The Out-of-Door Academy’s educational values and quality. We find comfort in knowing that we are tackling this together, as a community. Our commitment to you is to approach this school year with strength, purpose, and care, and to seek joy and laughter in every moment. Whether we are near or far, we know things are better when we're together. 

Giving during these 48 hours provides unrestricted support and invaluable resources to our School while allowing us to deliver the OUTstanding and innovative college preparatory education that Out-of-Door has maintained for more than 95 years. 

  • Our school needs to be nimble and able to respond quickly to the evolving needs of our students and teachers. Your gift to the annual fund provides us with the flexibility to do that, keeping our community safe, whole, and happy as we face new challenges.
  • So far this year, gifts to the annual fund have provided additional financial assistance to our families, PPE for on campus learning, advanced technology and faculty professional development to elevate our in-person and virtual learning. These dollars are critical.

Our goal is to reach 250 donors in 48 hours. And, when we reach 100 donors, a generous pool of donors will give an additional $100,000 to support the campaign. We look forward to working together to show the strength of the ODA community and the difference one gift, one share, and one campaign can make for ODA!
