Why Give?

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 to support faculty professional development, student financial aid, and Spark Tank innovation grants. Annual Fund participation demonstrates a shared belief in and commitment to Dwight’s mission.
  • Capital Fundraising: The Foundation raises capital funds to make transformative investments and expand opportunities for Dwight students and faculty. 
  • Spring Benefit: This event both celebrates the Dwight community and supports the Foundation’s mission. We are thrilled to announce that our 2023 Spring Benefit will tentatively be held on April 27 at 583 Park Avenue and we will share more details in the coming months.
