One of the best-established traditions at Woodberry Forest School is its culture of philanthropy. Working together, alumni, parents, past parents, and friends currently contribute more than $3.7 million to the Amici Fund, one of the most impressive annual funds among independent schools. Last Year, an incredible 65.5 percent of our alumni and 85 percent of current parents participated in this milestone achievement. Every gift to the Amici Fund is important. Amici provides more than 10 percent of the school’s program costs, including competitive salaries to our faculty and tuition assistance to students. Annual gifts, whether large or small, are integral to Woodberry Forest’s character. Through the Amici Fund, everyone who loves Woodberry can contribute to strengthening and enriching it.

The Amici Fund is Woodberry Forest’s annual giving campaign. Gifts to the Amici Fund support our operating budget, and all Amici dollars are spent during the current fiscal year. These annual gifts ensure Woodberry fulfills our mission of preparing boys for their future.
I can only make a small gift to the school. Yes! Every gift to the school makes a difference in the lives of the boys. Your gift demonstrates your confidence in the mission of Woodberry Forest and our commitment to educating boys. And because gifts to the Amici Fund are utilized during the current fiscal year, your contribution makes an immediate impact in the school community.
The Amici Fund supports the boys, the faculty, and the campus. Each gift provides financial aid for deserving students, technology for classrooms, musical instruments for our fine arts department, bikes for the outdoor education team, and even funding for campus-wide community service projects. The Amici Fund supports what Woodberry boys are doing on campus TODAY.

Woodberry Forest’s operating budget is financed by tuition and a draw on our endowment at the rate of five percent. However, these two sources of revenue do not fully fund the operating budget. The Amici Fund bridges the 10 percent gap, helping to ensure that Woodberry is able to support the many opportunities available to the boys on campus.
