Get Involved

There are several ways to join our efforts and get involved in 2019-20!
 

Annual Fund Committee

The Annual Fund is Dwight’s most important fundraising initiative. It is an appeal to the entire community to support student financial aid, faculty professional development, and Spark Tank innovation grants. Annual Fund participation is a strong demonstration of a shared belief in Dwight and its mission. The Annual Fund Committee solicits and secures gifts to ensure that we have a diverse and talented community.
