The Annual Fund is the most important fund raising priority at Durham Academy. It helps bridge the gap between tuition income and the cost of operating the school. Unrestricted giving to the Annual Fund is put to use immediately and supports many programs that make Durham Academy extraordinary. Your gift to the Annual Fund is a direct investment in
- vibrant visual and performing arts
- competitive athletics
- a premiere facility
- financial aid for talented and deserving students
- strong experiential education
These important dollars impact every DA student and teacher, every day! We welcome gifts of all sizes. A high rate of participation helps DA when applying for grants.
The best way to support DA is with a gift to the Annual Fund. You can make a credit card donation via the web at our Make A Gift Online page or contact Chris Mark, Director of Annual Giving, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 489-6569, ext. 6147.
