Why Give?

Why Give to The Foundation?

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating a child and providing a world-class Dwight School education. 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. All donations to the Foundation are 100% tax-deductible.

The Foundation has three main fundraising initiatives.

  • The Annual Fund: This is our yearly appeal to all members of the Dwight community, which supports the causes of faculty professional development, student financial aid, and Spark Tank innovation grants.
  • Capital Fundraising: The Foundation raises capital funds to make transformative investments, and to expand programs and opportunities for Dwight students and faculty.
  • Spring Benefit: This event both celebrates the Dwight community and supports the Foundation’s mission. We will be hosting the Benefit on a biennial basis and look forward to its return in 2021!
