Annual Fund

Why the Annual Fund Matters

Providing essential funds for innovative educational experiences, cultural and athletic initiatives, the Annual Fund affords the Foundation the flexibility to provide alternative resources to classrooms that are not covered by the district's budget. Gifts provided through the Annual Fund allow our educators the opportunity to explore new initiatives and help the Foundation respond to areas of greatest need.

Your support makes it possible for many students to access an education that otherwise would not be provided. Your gifts make a tremendous impact; the financial commitments of our donors make transformational opportunities a reality.

Each person has a unique reason for supporting DASD and wanting to ensure that each student has access to the best learning environment possible.

Every year, every gift of every size truly makes a difference.

It is more than giving back, it is fueling the future for all students. Lend your support today and become part of the living legacy for the Derry Area School District.
