Giving to Oldfields
Oldfields Girls are Going Places, Thanks to You!
The Oldfields Experience is unlike any other. For over 155 years, our School has provided girls with exceptional educational opportunities that allow them to discover who they are, to learn their strengths, to challenge themselves, and to find their voice. They form lifelong connections based upon a long history of traditions that value genuine kindness, trust, and mutual respect. While we celebrate each of our girls’ diverse individuality, it is the shared deep-rooted sense of belonging that makes our community a family and our campus a home.

You can give quickly and easily by using our secure credit card payment system. Gifts can be made through a single payment, or by scheduling multiple payments throughout the year (e.g., recurring monthly gifts).
Donating gifts of appreciated securities that have been held for more than one year enables a donor to:
- Avoid all capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the stock
- Qualify for tax deduction equal to the stock’s full fair market value
- Make a larger gift than might be otherwise possible
If you would like to directly wire your gift to Oldfields, you can do so by contacting the Development Office who can provide you with wire transfer instructions. When making the transfer, please note the name of the donor and the gift designation. The Development Office staff can answer any other questions you may have.
Why support Oldfields School?
We believe in our girls from the first day they arrive on campus. By the time they graduate, they believe in themselves. Your generous support allows more girls to benefit from this type of life-changing experience, and they go into the world and give it back ten-fold!
The School's most important ongoing fundraising priority is The Oldfields Fund, which provides critical support for the School's annual operating budget. Your gift has a direct impact by:
- Ensuring each girl receives personalized attention academically, socially, and emotionally
- Attracting the best and brightest faculty for our broad and deep curriculum
- Investing in cutting-edge technology to prepare our girls for life beyond Oldfields
- Maintaining and preserving our beautiful, historic campus
The campus Oldfields enjoys today and its endowment exists because of the tremendous generosity of past donors. Capital gifts ensure the future of the School by providing brick-and-mortar building projects and/or endowment.
Gifts to endowment help alleviate the pressure of the operating budget and are referred to as the "principal" or "corpus." These gifts remain untouched and are invested, with interest income supporting the purposes of the endowment.
Legacy gifts help provide the means for the School to remain true to its mission of educating young women in a supportive, family-like atmosphere which encourages individual achievement, mutual respect, and a strong sense of community.
The Largo Core Society honors alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, and friends who have made provisions in their estate plans for the benefit of Oldfields School. Planned gifts to Oldfields enable you to make a lasting contribution to the School you love—a contribution that will have a significant impact even beyond your lifetime.
