Supporting Dunham

Advancing Our Mission

Thank you for your interest in supporting The Dunham School. Our mission is to provide students with an outstanding college preparatory education set in the framework of Christian instruction and example.  

As an independent school without financial support from any church or denomination, Dunham operates solely on tuition and gift income. Tuition dollars are allocated to meet the basic operational needs, but we rely on the generous support of our donors and the efforts of our amazing army of volunteers to transform a great education into an extraordinary one—one that prepares students to step forward as the next generation of leaders, scholars, and compassionate Christians.

We would be delighted to work with you in structuring gift opportunities that ensure your philanthropic goals are met while best supporting the needs of the school. Gifts may be made in a variety of ways including cash, credit card, matching gifts, or securities. Dunham is a 501(c)(3); all contributions made to the school are tax-deductible upon compliance with the Internal Revenue Code. If you would like to speak with a member of our advancement team regarding your gift, please contact Kelly DeRossette.
