Young Alumnae Giving Challenge 2019

This campaign ended on November 20, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Dana Hall School by clicking here!

One week. 300 young alumnae donors. 

An additional $30,000 for Dana Hall.

We need 300 young alumnae to give a gift of any size to the Dana Fund between November 13 and 20. When we reach that goal, the School will receive an additional $30,000 from an anonymous group of donors.

Your gift to the Dana Fund supports student expenses not covered by tuition. With your support, girls can engage with curriculum using the most up-to-date technology, compete at the highest level in athletics and travel internationally over spring break. It takes thousands of donors giving what they can to help cover these costs. We hope you will join your silver sisters from the Classes of 2005 to 2019 and step up to the challenge this week.

Young Alumnae Giving Challenge Participation Award: As we did last year, we will have an award for the class with the highest percentage of donors. We will be honoring the Class of 2008 who led the 2018 Young Alumnae Giving Challenge with 48% participation. Will your class be the one to win this year?

Young Alumnae Leadership Donors: Alumnae who give at the leadership level are the backbone of the Dana Fund. We value these generous and dedicated alumnae who were responsible for approximately 77% of all alumnae giving to the Dana Fund last fiscal year.

In recognition that many of our younger alumnae would like to be part of this important group but may not yet be able to give at the same level as our older alumnae, we have established leadership levels for young alumnae on a graduated basis.

You can be a leader at the following levels:

Classes 2005-2009: $1,000 or more
Classes 2010-2014: $500-$999
Classes 2015-2019: $100-$499
