About

What is OneWoodberry 2018?

If 2,000 alumni make a gift to Woodberry today, a group of thirty alumni will contribute an unprecedented $300,000 to the 2017-2018 Amici Fund. Make your gift now!

The class in each decade with the highest participation percentage will receive special recognition in all Woodberry-related communications outlets throughout the upcoming year. 

How Do I Participate? 

  • GIVE to the Amici Fund. We hope you’ll consider a gift of 5% more than you gave last year, but all gifts count.
  • GET others to join, and follow our progress towards 2,000 donors, plus your class’s standing. Attend one of 17 Regional Association OneWoodberry2018 gatherings near you.

Why Amici Matters

Amici will provide more than 11% of the school’s budget for our upcoming 2018-2019 academic year. Your gift will go right to work.

  • Currently, 41% of our tuition assistance program comes from the Amici Fund.

  • Last year, Amici’s support of tuition assistance extended the Woodberry experience to 70 boys that wouldn’t have attended otherwise.

  • Each of our faculty and staff benefit greatly from your gift, through Amici’s support of compensation, benefits, healthcare and family housing.

  • Amici provides about 5 percent of the school’s programming budget. From voice coaches during the musical to new equipment for teams, Amici makes it possible.

Historic Finish - OneWoodberry 2018 Soars

Tigers around the country and world have shown once again that there is no group of alumni more loyal than those from Woodberry Forest. Today we made history with the most successful show of Amici support in Woodberry’s 129 years. We received 2,928 gifts from alumni who range in age from 18-years-old to 101-years-old, raising $1.5 million.

In record-setting time (by 2:30 p.m. Eastern) we met our ambitious goal of 2,000 donors, and our challenge donors made their $300,000 gift to Woodberry Forest. Throughout the day from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. more than two gifts per minute were made by you, our incredible alumni. What an amazing effort! The classes of 2000 and 2005 both made history as more than 100 members of each group showed their support for Woodberry.

Amici gifts go directly to work supporting the students, faculty, and staff. Tuition assistance from the Amici Fund enables seventy boys to attend Woodberry who would not otherwise be able to come to school here. Amici gifts go toward faculty and staff salaries and help us buy athletic equipment and art supplies. Woodberry truly would not be the same without its incredible alumni.

It was great to hear about the alumni events in eighteen cities around the country; we’ve already posted several photos online and look forward to receiving more in the coming days.

A special thank you to Bill Caler '63, every one of our challenge donors, every donor around the world, and to all of our hard-working volunteers. We hope everyone was able to tune into WFSPN for updates from campus throughout the day. If you couldn’t watch live, those broadcasts remain available at https://www.wfspn.org/onewoodberry. During the day we heard from The Dozen, students, history teacher Steve Stancill ’74 and science teacher Jim Reid.  

Thank you again from everyone at Woodberry, and goodnight Tigers!
