Durham Academy Fund

Our highest giving priority, the Durham Academy Fund ensures students an unparalleled experience in academics, athletics, arts and all areas of pursuit. Student-teacher relationships are the heart of the school, and the DA Fund fuels every facet of the DA experience for every student and every faculty member, every day.

A gift to the DA Fund is the single most important way to support Durham Academy and immediately impacts the school's areas of greatest need. You may choose, however, to direct your contribution to an area of impact within the DA Fund with particular meaning to you. All gifts to Durham Academy are tax-deductible.

“I give to DA so other students can benefit as I did. I would not have discovered some of my dearest passions, nor would I have made it through medical school, without the education, skills and life lessons I gained from my teachers and coaches. I owe them more than they will ever know.”
