  • The D-E Annual Fund

    Like most independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the true cost of the D-E experience and so, philanthropy plays a critical role in the operation of the School.  Gifts to the D-E Annual Fund help to maintain a balanced budget, manage costs, and uphold the quality of education for which we are best known.
  • The Head of School Society

    We invite you to partner with us to keep Dwight-Englewood strong by joining the Head of School Society by making a leadership gift to the D-E Annual Fund.  Membership in the Head of School Society signifies an exceptional D-E Annual Fund financial investment of $2,500 or more.

    Members of the Head of School Society enjoy invitations to special programs and events hosted by the Head of School.  Leadership donors are also recognized in the Annual Report.
