Why Giving Matters

Thank you for supporting a mind-opening education.

Since our founding as St. Helen's Hall in 1869, every student has been shaped by the generosity and vision of our community. From the land and buildings to the endowment, generations of generous families and individuals have created the school that serves today's students.

Every day OES students explore their individual and collective power for good, connect to the world around them, create ways to help others, and commit to lifelong service. OES delivers a program that opens the heart and changes lives.

The same is true of our philanthropists who have continuously served as role models to our students and our community, giving back selflessly so OES students flourish. These leaders teach us about compassion and show us a commitment that truly serves the greater good.

Without the committed supporters who encircle OES, we wouldn't be who we are today. 

That's why philanthropy matters.
