About the Annual Fund
Thanks to the generosity of our community including current parents, past parents, alumni, faculty and staff, and grandparents, the 2015-16 annual fund received gifts of more than $270,000. We are delighted to report that a full 100 percent of our Board of Trustees made a commitment to annual giving last year as did over 80 percent of current parents, and 100% of our faculty and staff! This year, let us honor all those who have gone before us and paved the way by generously supporting the 2016-2017 annual fund.
The annual giving goal for the current school year is $260,000. We are fortunate to have former PA president and 8th grade president, Ann Stettner Charles, as our Annual Fund Chair. Along with an outstanding group of class representatives, Ann continues to lay the groundwork to ensure the strong tradition of annual giving at DDS.
Please help our school by making your gift or pledge today. Your gift will help DDS provide competitive faculty salaries, an outstanding and varied curriculum, and financial aid – all of which are crucial to achieving the school’s mission of diversity. Please join parents, alumni, grandparents, special friends, and the entire faculty and staff in supporting the annual fund.
Thank you. Your gift — in any amount — is greatly appreciated.
