Message from the 2021-2022 Annual Fund Chairs
The kindness, thoughtfulness, generosity, and altruism of others have shaped our experiences and interactions with the world and have brought us to this moment serving as the 2021-2022 Annual Fund co-chairs.
Through the years, we have both benefited in countless ways from the acts of neighbors, family, friends, and community. For example, financial aid and scholarships helped us attend high school and college. And at DCD, tuition assistance enabled us to afford our initial enrollment years as well. So, we understand firsthand what a difference giving can make and have witnessed its impact in the lives of others and throughout whole communities. That’s why we’re happy to serve DCD’s tremendous community that inspires nearly 100% parent participation every year.
The theme of this year’s Annual Fund is Forward. Forward evokes DCD’s momentum as we manage through the challenges of the pandemic and turn our focus to the many opportunities ahead. It describes our collective commitment to ensuring our teachers get all the resources they need. It reflects our desire to help DCD to continue providing our students with an outstanding balanced education that meets the moment’s challenges and opportunities.
DCD’s Annual Fund is crucial for controlling tuition costs while expanding opportunities to enhance our children’s learning experiences. It allows us to be prepared for the unexpected and meet challenges as they arise. Participation at any level also signals a deep trust in our school’s leadership, especially Allison Webster, as she continually assesses what is needed for DCD’s curriculum and campus.
Please join with the many members of our community who believe that each of us can make a positive, long-lasting difference, and that every one of us is a thread that lends strength to the fabric of DCD.
