The Dexter Southfield Fund

The Dexter Southfield Fund is a vital annual effort that contributes 8% of the School’s operating budget. These critical resources, available for immediate use, drive forward the School’s mission by supporting educational curriculum, financial aid, faculty professional development and compensation, athletics, the arts, facilities, and the student experience.

The Dexter Southfield Fund is successful each year due to the generosity of many members of our community, including current and former parents, faculty and staff, alumni, grandparents, and friends. We are grateful to each of the nearly 1,200 donors to last year’s effort; your collective support of the School and demonstrated belief in its mission are not only inspiring but also have a real and meaningful impact at Dexter Southfield.

Broad community participation is very important to the School. We are proud to share that in 2016-2017, 77% of parents, 87% of faculty and staff, and 9% of alumni made a gift to the Dexter Southfield Fund. This year we are focused on increasing these numbers even more as we move towards our 2017-2018 goal of $2.4 million.

Each year gifts to the Dexter Southfield Fund range in amount from $5 to over $100,000, and gifts of $2,500 and above receive special leadership recognition in School publications. The 2017-2018 Dexter Southfield Fund will end on June 30, 2018. All gifts are tax-deductible.
