ANNUAL FUND 2018-19
Ashley and Linda Shih, Chairs
DCD is remarkable in the way it brings together so many people who work to create an unparalleled educational experience for our students. Step into school in the middle of the day and look around. Examples are everywhere.
 
Teachers and coaches inspire our children to become lifelong learners. School administrators and staff work diligently to ensure a vibrant learning environment. Parents and grandparents volunteer and give of their time and resources. Alumni remain connected with DCD and serve both as reminders of DCD’s history and glimpses into its future.
 
In this environment, our students learn; play; agree and disagree; challenge; and mentor each other – they realize their potential. 

Help Us Meet Our Potential
 
As with almost all independent schools, DCD’s tuition does not cover the full cost of the rich educational experience it provides to each student. We need your help to bridge this gap. Gifts to the DCD Annual Fund are critical in this regard and benefit our students today; they are applied to current academic year operating expenses and are the most effective way to ensure that, together, we meet our potential.
 
Each gift, of any size, reflects the purpose that connects us as one family. The high level of participation in the DCD Annual Fund also reinforces our collective commitment to providing an exceptional educational experience for our students.
