Support

There are many ways to give to Deerfield.

Whether you are making a financial gift, attending an event, or sharing your wisdom with new parents through DPN’s First Link program, your involvement enriches Deerfield, bolstering its resources and contributing to the community on many levels.

Financial gifts allow us to retain outstanding faculty; make new library acquisitions and information resources possible; purchase laboratory and classroom equipment; improve student and athletic facilities; and expand financial aid, among other things. Gifts to Deerfield are direct investments in programs that benefit your children and contribute to the academy’s overall efforts by creating an environment of participation.

The Senior Parent Gift

It is a long-standing tradition at Deerfield that our senior parents come together each year to fund a special building project or endowment as a legacy of the graduating class.

The Parents Annual Fund

Parents of ninth-graders, tenth-graders, and juniors provide unparalleled support to the Annual Fund. Deerfield parents Annual Giving always aims for 100% parent participation. We can only achieve this goal if everybody gives, so please consider your tax-deductible contribution today. No gift is too small and every gift is essential. Please contact Julia Flannery with any questions.

The cost of a Deerfield education is approximately $78,000 per student per year – meaning that all of our students are on some measure of financial aid. Our endowment is able to provide a significant proportion of the difference between this cost and tuition, but not all of it. With this, we ask parents and alumni to help support the school’s mission as generously as they are able.

Other Capital Projects

Gifts to existing endowment funds and building projects are also meaningful to the Academy, and help strengthen the institution.
