Annual Fund Committee
The Annual Fund is Dwight’s most important fundraising initiative. It is an appeal to the entire community to support student financial aid, faculty professional development, and Spark Tank innovation grants. Annual Fund participation is a strong demonstration of a shared belief in Dwight and its mission. The Annual Fund Committee solicits and secures gifts to ensure that we have a diverse and talented community.
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, which is dedicated in their honor. The Class of 2019 earned naming rights to the 291 Central Park West entrance and the Class of 2018 earned the same for the passageway to the new brownstone at 21 West 88th Street. The Senior Gift Committee solicits and secures gifts from fellow senior parents.
Spark Tank Committee
Spark Tank, Dwight’s incubator designed to nurture student leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship beyond the classroom for students in grades K-12, was launched in 2015. The Spark Tank Committee — comprised of accomplished parents and alumni in a variety of fields — advises and mentors students, and approves funding for their projects.
