The Annual Fund First (AFF) is the cornerstone of Pinewood's philanthropic efforts. The AFF campaign is the most critical source of immediately available flexible funds and is crucial to the financial health of our school.


The funds raised from the Annual Fund First enable Pinewood to create an engaging and joyful experience for our students so we can honor our commitment to:

  • Provide a transformative education to each Pinewood student through engaging academic, arts, and athletics offerings
  • Create programs and spaces that align with our mission-driven student learning outcome
  • Recruit and retain world-class faculty
