What The Foundation Supports

Established in 1969, The Dwight School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is governed by a Board of Trustees and provides professional development grants to faculty, and financial aid and innovation grants to students.

The Foundation has three main fundraising initiatives: the Annual Fund; capital fundraising for transformative investments and expanded opportunities for Dwight students, faculty, and programs; and the Spring Benefit, a social event that both celebrates the Dwight community and supports the Foundation’s mission.

In 2021-22, contributions to our annual and capital initiatives provided: 

  • $1.4 million in financial aid grants for students
  • Over 100 professional development grants for faculty
  • Spark Tank innovation grants for seven students developing their own businesses and nonprofits through Dwight’s incubator, joining 100 students who have participated in this program since its founding

In addition to securing philanthropic support, the Foundation oversees all School alumni relations and works closely with the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Head of School, Foundation Trustees, Parents Association, Alumni Council, and countless volunteers to strengthen the Dwight community.
