Why I give

by Lisa Howell, Director of Marketing & Communications at DVFriends

   

First and foremost, I give to DVFriends because I believe passionately in the mission of the school, and in my nearly 15 years at DV, I have seen that promise fulfilled in the lives of students and families over and over again.

Whether it's in the stories students of all ages tell me about how their lives have changed for the better since coming to DV, or whether it's in the ways students blossom academically and in extra-curricular activities like the musical, the transformative power of the school on young lives is visible and palpable in big and small ways every single day.

Another reason why giving back to DV is important to me is because of the care and support the community has given to me and my family in the time that I have been here. We've gone through some tough times, and the school community has been there for us in ways I can never repay. I consider my colleagues part of my extended family!

Won't you join me in helping to ensure that DV can continue to have such an incredible impact on the lives of smart, talented young people by supporting the school with a gift today?

Make your gift in honor of a DV teacher.

DV's expert teachers like Jackie Middleton, are what make DV so special. And alumni like Joe Monzo know it. Our compassionate teachers are what create a safe space for learning at DV.

What do your donations fund at DV?

Our large offering of no-cut athletics. For such a small school, we offer many different sports for students to try in a low-pressure environment. Our athletic program is built more around inclusion, engagement, and teamwork than around the results on the scoreboard.

CELEBRITY SIGHTING!

David Calamaro started off as a teacher at DV over 27 YEARS AGO.

Now he's helping to guide DV into the future as Associate Head and Academic Dean with his vast knowledge of students who learn differently and the faculty who teach them. David knows that offering professional development opportunities to our teachers is what keeps them at the top of their game.

Make a gift today to support professional development at DV!

Tim Simmons and the music program benefit from charitable giving!



Did you know that our very own Tim Simmons developed DV's music curriculum based in research? He focuses on improvisation to help students:

  • Learn to play a variety of instruments
  • Understand music theory
  • Free their creativity
  • Stimulate the areas of the brain that help students with language development.

Tim is an amazing teacher and your charitable giving helps him bring new and exciting ideas to the classroom and music to every student.
