List of 4 items.

  • Annual Fund

    The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of all giving to Dalton and supports the ongoing day-to-day operational expenses of the School. It allows us to attract and retain talented faculty; provide exceptional academic, arts and athletic programs; and offer meaningful scholarship opportunities. For more information, please contact Hannah Wasserman Cobin at or 212-423-5316.
  • Centennial: Raise the Roof Campaign

    With the School’s 100th birthday celebration approaching in April 2019, Dalton has embarked on an ambitious $100 million Centennial: Raise the Roof Campaign. Co-chairs are Cheryl Cohen Effron ’83, Eric Lee, Bruce Menin and Sabrina Smith.

    This comprehensive campaign will support the addition of two floors atop the 89th Street building to house a state-of-the-art STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) facility. The new space will include large, flexible areas for collaborative work, group meetings, science fairs and art exhibits, a design project lab, teaching kitchen, and greenhouse.

    The campaign will also fund the reconfiguration and renovation of existing floors at 89th Street. Plans call for a 21st-century library and modernized performance space for our dance program. In addition, the campaign will provide programmatic support for new and existing initiatives.

    We are currently in the early phase of our fundraising efforts for this exciting and transformative project. Our results to date have been highly successful, and we hope to continue along this positive trajectory in the months and years ahead.

    For more information, please contact Sally Vallimarescu at or 212-423-5245.

  • Senior Class Gift

    Parents of seniors are asked to make one meaningful, increased gift to Dalton that will be allocated 25% to the Senior Class Gift and 75% to the Annual Fund. The Senior Class Gift has become an essential Dalton tradition. Selected by seniors, this gift honors the graduating class while bestowing a meaningful legacy from the Class of 2017 to the school.
