Learn more about the Dawson Fund today!

The Dawson Fund is the foundation of our fundraising efforts. This annual campaign has a meaningful impact on the outstanding work of our teachers and all of the many programs that make the Dawson experience so personal and unique. It also keeps tuition as affordable as possible, because the Dawson Fund is designed to fill the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Dawson education.

When you support the Dawson Fund, your gift benefits all of our robust visual and performing arts programs, our innovative faculty, our excellent academic offerings, our athletic teams, and allows Dawson the flexibility to respond to the ever-changing needs of our community.

New this year, families may designate their gift within the Dawson Fund. Donors are invited to choose their passion and select from: the area of greatest need, professional development, facilities and campus safety, or tuition assistance. Our hope is to inspire all of our families to contribute toward our annual goal of $500,000. Gifts are tax-deductible, and every gift, of any amount, makes a difference in the lives of Dawson students.

 To make a pledge to the Dawson Fund, please email Carly Slagel in the Development Office. Pledges count toward our participation goals and can be paid through June 30, 2023. 

Thank you for selecting a designation for your Dawson Fund donation. If contributions to a particular fund exceed the budgeted need, Dawson will redirect contributions to areas of greatest need. 

Gifts of all sizes are essential in reaching our fundraising goal. Dawson Fund donors will be listed in our Annual Report according to their giving level.
