About the Annual Fund
Thanks to the generosity of our community including current parents, past parents, alumni, faculty and staff, and grandparents, the 2011-2012 Annual Fund received gifts of more than $225,000. 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 close to 90 percent of current parents. This year, let us honor all those who have gone before us and paved the way by generously supporting the 2012-2013 Annual Fund.
The annual giving goal for the 2012-2013 school year is $195,000. We are fortunate to have current parent, Jackie Montfort, as this yearís Annual Fund Chair who along with an outstanding group of Class Representatives, is laying the groundwork to ensure the strong tradition of annual giving at DDS.
Please help us maintain the strong tradition of annual giving at our school by making your gift or pledge today. Your gift will help DDS provide competitive faculty salaries, an outstanding and varied curriculum, and the financial aid that are crucial to achieving the Schoolís 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.
If you have any questions, please contact Hillary Henderson, Director of Development at Henderson@dutchessday.org.
