OneWoodberry

What is OneWoodberry?
  • OneWoodberry is the school's yearly celebration where all members of the community, both on and off campus come together to make charitable gifts and support this great school 
  • OneWoodberry is usually on a Thursday and normally takes place in the late winter/early spring.
  • OneWoodberry is both an on campus and off campus event
  • OneWoodberry Originated as a “Week for Woodberry” but that was shortened to a day in 2017 in order to center the Woodberry Community’s focus on a singular giving day. 
During OneWoodberry there are challenges that promote competition amongst Tigers everywhere. They include…
  • The alumni decade challenge (Top participation percentage in each decade) 
  • Current parent challenge (Top participation percentage of the parents of current Woodberry students) 
  • We allow individual alumni, parents and friends of the school to set up their own challenges to incentivize/inspire others to give
Purpose: OneWoodberry originated as a day to inspire Tigers across the world to show off their passion and support for Woodberry on one singular day. We wanted to help Tigers around the world show their support for the Amici Fund and its programs for current students. It was so successful that it has grown into a strong tradition each year for alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and students to rally together on OneWoodberry. This is our sixth OneWoodberry, and we look forward to a great celebration on February 24.

Goals
Woodberry’s goals for OneWoodberry 2022 are to have 3,500 Amici donors and $3,000,000 in contributions by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on February 24. All Amici gifts from July 1, 2021 through February 24 will count toward our OneWoodberry grand total. Each Amici gift directly supports the Campaign for the Boys.

How you can get involved: OneWoodberry 2022 has been completed, however, you can give now to show your support. For more information, reach out to Bill Robertson at bill_robertson@woodberry.org.
 
OneWoodberry 2022 was one for the record books. We accomplished our goals of collecting gifts from 3500 donors and raising 3 Million Dollars from the Tiger nation. We ended up with 3,582 donors and $3,441,617 raised which was a record amount for a OneWoodberry Campaign. 
All of these gifts go immediately to work supporting the boys here now, and each gift is also part of advancing the goals of the Campaign for the Boys. This evening, while alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of the school were gathering at OneWoodberry events around the country, and as we made our push toward reaching our goals, the student body enjoyed a seated meal together before attending an assembly with Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, the president of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. 

During his remarks, Dr. Hrabowksi noted that Woodberry boys attend one of the best schools in the country, and that they enjoy an incredible level of support from their community, both on campus and around the world. He called on the boys to step forward and embrace a life of excellence in the spirit of Woodberry’s values of intellectual thoroughness and moral integrity. 

“Being excellent is achieving all you can do, until you reach the point where you think you cannot take another step, and then you take that step,” Dr. Hrabowski said. “I see you and I think about how every one of you will be a leader who will touch thousands of lives.” 
Above all, thank you. We are tremendously grateful to every single person who’s made a gift as part of OneWoodberry and the Campaign for the Boys. You have ensured that the 400 boys who make up the Woodberry brotherhood will continue to enjoy a transformational experience.

  • OneWoodberry 2022 Day of Recap

    Day of OneWoodberry 2022 Activities Recap

    Tiger Roar
    Lynn Bache put so much spirit into the day as she dressed not only herself, but the entire Fir Tree with a Tiger/Woodberry theme. She capped it off with a peppy cheer and a clever roar, and for that, it was hard not to call her the best in show. Honorable mention to Will Fletcher ’06 and his adorable family for their creativity and to Ned Leahy for his accuracy in replicating an actual Tiger’s roar. 

    Show Your Stripes
    Thomas Hall ’98 of Richmond dressed to impress with his striped suit. He literally showed his stripes. Honorable mention to Jamie Alexander and Woodberry’s own Chris Holmes. 

    Reese’s Pieces Guess Jar 
    Thomas Perry ’24 of Charlotte pulled the Archimedes Circle Theorem straight from Matthew Keating’s class to claim victory. 

    The correct amount of Reese’s Pieces in the jar was 4,094. Thomas’s guess of 4,127 was the closest of everyone who played! Reid Hood ’22 earned second place with his guess of 4,200, and Pen Oldham received third place with his guess of 4,218. 

    Thanks to everyone again for showing such enthusiastic Tiger spirit. And thank you to the entire community for all the spirit and support you showed for our school.
