Capital Campaign

“Angel of the Woods” Capital Campaign

Angels are known to be heavenly messengers directing us toward divine plans that elude ordinary mortals. On the edge of the Anderson Smith Campus of the North Florida School of Special Education sits a five-acre tract of magical woods. The Ida Mae Stevens Foundation became an Angel of the Woods in October 2014, gifting the land to the school.

The Woods are known as a storied place, where metamorphosis occurs and transformation takes place. Knights become worthy, and maidens find strength. In these Woods, the Board of Directors of the North Florida School of Special Education cast a grand vision for a $6 million capital campaign filled with inspired plans for a new lower-school campus and therapeutic equestrian center, promising enduring growth for the school, the students and our community.

Would you unearth the magic of the Woods and partake in sculpting a flourishing path for children in Northeast Florida living with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities by investing in our Angel of the Woods capital campaign? Select a naming opportunity that touches your heart. Your gift falls on fertile soil in a known land.

For 25 years, North Florida School of Special Education’s deep-rooted commitment to serve children who travel a different developmental path has been our highest mission. Your investment in the Angel of the Woods capital campaign is an expression of your trust and faith in us.

Come into the Woods and shake the earth with us as we bring magic to the forest floor and create life among trees.
