In 2014, the Academy completed the 15-year Campus Master Plan created in 2000 one year ahead of schedule. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Woodward successfully completed Campaign Woodward, a seven-year comprehensive campaign that raised $63.2 million, transforming our campus with state-of-the-art learning spaces, bolstering our endowment, and supporting our annual giving program.
Endowment funds serve as our "savings accounts" for student financial aid, student and teacher enrichment, and awards and prizes. The Academy uses only annual earnings from these funds and does not spend the principal. Our current policy allows for the annual spending of five percent of the three-year average of the market value of each fund. Woodward requires a minimum principal amount of $100,000 to establish student financial aid funds and a minimum of $50,0000 for enrichment funds. Endowed prize funds can be established at lesser amounts depending on the purpose and goal of each fund.
