Girls learning, leading, succeeding

The Dana Fund

Gifts to the Dana Fund support the people and programs that form Dana Hall’s unique community, one that encourages each Dana student to realize her potential and take on new challenges. Your generosity gives current and future Dana girls the opportunity to learn, lead and succeed.
A successful annual fund is a reflection of a strong community and ensures continued growth and stability for current and future generations of students. Dana Fund dollars are unrestricted which provides flexibility and support for the School's current operating budget. Dana Hall relies on Dana Fund gifts from members of its community to bridge the gap between the income received from tuition and the actual cost of a Dana Hall education. Dana Fund gifts allows the School to offer competitive tuition, attract and retain talented faculty, provide exceptional academic, arts and athletic programs, and offer meaningful scholarship opportunities.
Participation in the Fund, at any level, is an indicator of the strength and financial health of Dana Hall. Your gifts send a message of commitment and stability to prospective families and other donors. Join alumnae, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends in sending the message that the Dana Hall community is invested in the School and its students.

    "Dana offers many great opportunities including a trip to South Africa every other year. I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be visiting South Africa, let alone with some of my closest friends. The trip enabled us to interact with real South Africans as they experienced their real lives, an opportunity I could never have had as a tourist."
