A capital campaign is a bricks and mortar fundraising effort to raise a specific sum of money within a defined period of time to meet building needs of a school. Needs can include the construction of new buildings, renovation of existing buildings, enlargement of buildings, land improvement, interior updates, and a building endowment for maintaining the school’s building structure. Many donors decide to increase their giving level during capital campaigns by making multiple year pledges and often consider a long-term stretch pledge payable over five years. Past capital campaigns have ensured that current and future generations of Woodland families will continue to benefit from the School’s mission. Thanks to the foresight of former Woodland families, the following successful capital campaigns helped grow our school: The United We Grow Campaign, Dunavant Building, Baker Building, Haygood Gymnasium, the Field of Dreams Campaign, and Bright Futures. For more information about Woodland’s capital campaign and other giving opportunities, please contact Tonya Eddins, Director of Development, firstname.lastname@example.org.

United We Grow Pledges
We are grateful to the over 300 supporters who made multiple year pledges to support the United We Grow Campaign. We started and completed construction on phase one as a result of each donor's pledge commitment, and we encourage all donors to stay current with their pledge payments. We also recognize that supporters may want to consider a final pledge payment as they get closer to their pledge commitment. Please contact Tonya Eddins, Development Director for information on your pledge balance, or any updates to your monthly pledge payments email@example.com
