Why Give to The Foundation?
The Dwight School Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity that was established in 1969 to provide financial aid to Dwight students and professional development grants to Dwight faculty. The Foundation’s Advancement Office is responsible for all fundraising and alumni relations. The Office works closely with the Chancellor, Head of School, Foundation Trustees, Parents’ Association, Alumni Council, and countless volunteers to secure philanthropic support and strengthen the Dwight community.
The Foundation has three main fundraising initiatives: the Annual Fund, an annual appeal to all members of the Dwight community; capital fundraising related to endowment growth; and the Spring Benefit, an entertaining evening for supporters which provides additional funds and builds community. Total giving to the Foundation has increased more than six-fold since 2003, totaling more than $21M, and has had a dramatic impact on Dwight students and faculty. We hope you, too, will support our efforts.
