In July 2015 we began the quiet phase of The Dalton Centennial Campaign to raise funds for Strategic Plan priorities—including the transformational 89th Street expansion and renovation and key ambitious programmatic initiatives.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, we’re thrilled to report that during our five-year campaign we raised more than $108 million, the highest total amount of any single fundraising effort in Dalton’s history, in support of Strategic Plan priorities and the Annual Fund.
Proceeds helped fund crucial strategic plan goals—which prioritize the evolving needs of our students and faculty by advancing our mission and aligning our programs, resources, and practices with our core values.
During the five years of the Centennial Campaign, we strengthened Dalton’s foundation from building and renovating physical spaces to growing our endowment. This historic campaign is an affirmation of our community members’ generosity and commitment to our School. The world changed drastically from the beginning to the end of this effort, and thanks to the incredible support of our community we are now in a position of strength to provide for anticipated—and unanticipated—needs in the years ahead.
