Annual Fund First

The 100-Day Campaign for the Annual Fund First (AFF) is the cornerstone of the philanthropic efforts at Pinewood and provides critical funds that directly support our programs, faculty, and extracurriculars that are all the hallmark of a Pinewood education. The AFF campaign is the most critical source of immediately available flexible funds and is crucial to the financial health of our school. This year, our goal is to raise $1.4 million with a robust parent participation in the AFF.

Your support of the Annual Fund First provides Pinewood with the additional financial resources necessary to:


Participation in annual giving is frequently used as a benchmark of a community’s strength, making support at any level especially powerful. This year’s campaign launches on September 23rd and ends on December 31st. We hope you’ll join the hundreds of Pinewood families who support the community in this critical effort.


Every year, we acknowledge the generosity of our donors in our “Book of Gratitude”, which also highlights the many ways in which their support has enriched our program and the experiences of our students.
