How will my gift make a difference?

Student Picture 2014

An unrestricted gift to Oakdale represents the shared commitment of Oakdale families, faculty, and friends to help bring the Oakdale experience to students through our promise to serve. These gifts help close the considerable gap between actual cost of offering this ministry and what the student can pay. Tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating each student, providing housing and meals for them, and all the evening and weekend activities and programming that are important for student development; therefore, we ask our donor friends for annual donations to bridge this gap. Unrestricted funds raised also make it possible for Oakdale Christian Academy to maintain small class size, which is central to fulfilling our mission. Please remember that no gift is too small.

Gifts of any amount support the fiscal year budget that ends on June 30 of each year. For your convenience, it is now possible to donate online.
