Annual Fund Committee
The Annual Fund is one of our most important fundraising initiatives. It is our yearly appeal to the entire community to support student financial aid, faculty professional development, and Spark Tank innovation grants. The Committee solicits and secures gifts to ensure that the Dwight community remains
Senior Gift Committee
Grade 12 families leave a legacy at Dwight by directing their Annual Fund donations to a specific purpose or part of the School to be dedicated in their honor. The Class of 2021 earned naming rights to the new Timothy House Entryway and the Class of 2020 earned the same for the Performing Arts Center on Columbus Avenue. The Committee solicits and secures gifts from fellow senior class parents.
Spark Tank Committee
Spark Tank is Dwight’s incubator designed to nurture student leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship beyond the classroom for students in grades K-12. The Committee — comprised of parents and alumni in a variety of industries — provides mentorship and feedback to students in the Spark Tank program and approves funding for their projects.
Spring Benefit Committee
The Spring Benefit is both a community building event and fundraiser and includes auction items generously donated by parents, alumni, and local businesses. The Committee solicits auction items, promotes ticket sales, and helps with event planning and logistics.
