REDWOOD ALUMNI GIVING DRIVE
The Alumni Association works closely with the Redwood Foundation. They sponsor our activities, we raise monies for the Foundation and the Alumni Scholarship, as well as help at some of their events. As you notice in the graph below, the ALUMNI sliver is almost non-existant! It's time for us to step up to the plate and help with any kind of contribution, large or small! DONATE NOW!
Not only does the Redwood Foundation support Alumni Activities (Avenue of Giants, Athletic Hall of Fame, Alumni Scholarship, Website...), it raised close to $1mil last year for Redwood Academics, Athletics and Arts. This is one of the major reasons why Redwood continues to be such an outstanding school, ranking 81st in the country in a recent survey. For mor informations about the Foundation, go to redwoodhsfoundation.com.
Here is a sampling of the grants last school year:
Chromebooks and carts/ Physiology dummies/ Chemistry, Scientific and Graphing Calculators/ AP Texts for Biology and Astronomy/ Renovation of the BARK room/ Guest artists/ Music and Fine Arts Laptops, software, scanners and gopro cameras/ Film and music sound equipment/ Annual funding for Music and Drama departments/ Annual funding for Benchwarmers/ Ongoing funding for Ghilotti Field/ Stationary Bikes/ Speech and Debate Fees/ Mock Trial Fees/ Funding for 3 Issues of Redwood Root Sports Magazine/ Beautification/ Student Wellness Center Supplies
