Support Dawson

At Dawson we have a strong tradition of philanthropy dating back to the beginning of the school. The equally strong culture of giving has made the difference between a good school and a great school.

Charitable giving is critical to Dawson’s success. We rely on the generosity of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, corporations, and foundations to meet our financial goals and enhance the Dawson experience.

The Dawson Fund, Dawson Endowment, and Planned Giving are ways you can support the school with a gift. We encourage you to explore this site and learn how you can invest in the lives of Dawson students.

Why Give?

The blend of academic excellence, intimate classes, extensive co-curricular opportunities, beautiful campus, safe environment, character education, and leadership development make Dawson an exceptional value.

But it’s the meaningful and authentic relationships between students and teachers that inspire learning and make Dawson unique. These relationships develop from the genuine commitment of faculty and staff to know all students and their heartfelt desire to support students in realizing their dreams and finding their way in the world.

Why I Give


Dawson hosts fundraising events that are fun and create a sense of community, all while supporting Dawson. After making an Annual Fund commitment, we hope that you will also consider joining us at these annual events:

Farm to Table Party:
Imagine a magical evening with friends, enjoying exquisite food, including locally sourced food and premium wines and beer, watching the sun set from the beautiful Dawson campus. You are envisioning Dawson’s annual Farm To Table event held in the fall.

The Spring Auction:
This is the last Dawson community event of the year and packs a huge fundraising punch! While enjoying great food, drinks, music, and conversations, proceeds from the night’s admission ticket, as well as silent and live auction
