REDWOOD FOUNDATION KICK OFF...
The Alumni Association works closely with the Redwood Foundation. They sponsor our activities, we raise some monies for the Alumni Scholarship, and we help at some of their events. If you are interested in helping to bartend at the Foundation Fundraising Kick Off at Mini of Marin in Corte Madera on Tuesday, September 27th, please contact Ross Gondak at firstname.lastname@example.org
REDWOOD FOUNDATION MET ITS GOALS
Not only does the Redwood Foundation support Alumni Activities (Avenue of Giants, Athletic Hall of Fame, Scholarship, website...), it raised close to $1mil this year for Redwood academics, athletic and arts. This is one of the major reasons why Redwood continues to be such an outstanding school, ranking among the highest in the state and country. Although most of the contributions were from parents, alumni also gave back to Redwood allowing for many departmental grants and capital projects. For details go to: redwoodhsfoundation.com
Here is a sampling of the grants last school year:
Textbooks | Laboratory Materials | New Seating
Machinable Wax and Melter | Graphing Calculators
Chemistry Calculators | Fitness Room Updates | Rolling White Boards
Go Pro Cameras | Guest Artists & Musicians | Large Format Scanners
Analytical Balances for Chemistry | The Root funding (Sport Magazine)
Art Supplies | Chromebooks and Carts for multiple classrooms |& more
Capital out lay has gone for:
Theater Refitting the "electronics/art" room into small theater
Benchwarmers $170,000 for 1,048 student athletes on 44 sports teams
Wellness Center $25,000 in furnishings and supplies
Scholarships $36,000 to 38 graduating seniors
Athletic Field Permanent bathrooms & snack bar on Troppman Field
