Durham Academy Giving Day

This campaign ends on March 6 at 08:00AM EST


March 5 is Durham Academy Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising event to support The DA Fund.

Our goal for the day is 1,000 donations from parents, alumni, faculty/staff, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends. 1,000 gifts unlock a $20,000 challenge gift!

Make a gift to honor a favorite teacher or coach! Support your class year or your child's class year with a gift such as $20.21 for the class of 2021. A gift to the DA Fund supports every student, every teacher, every day. And every gift, NO MATTER THE SIZE, will bring us closer to today's goal.

In addition to any challenges you may see to the left, here are some challenges we're offering to get you in the competitive spirit!    

CAVALIER CHALLENGE
If 1,000 donors make a gift today, a generous DA family will donate $20,000 to the DA Fund! That $20,000 works above and beyond tuition to make your child’s DA experience the best it can be. Every gift from any donor counts toward that goal. 
Thank you for supporting the DA Fund!

NEW DONOR CHALLENGE                                                                                                      
Today is the day to double your gift, thanks to a dollar-for-dollar match up to $3,000 for every NEW gift made today!
Thank you Selene and Zankhna Parekh!

THANK A TEACHER CHALLENGE
If you’re a DA parent or a parent of alumni, today is the day to thank that influential person in your child’s life. Every gift made in honor of a current or former DA faculty, staff member or coach will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $6,000 by an anonymous donor.
Thank you for supporting the DA Fund!

#ALWAYSACAV YOUNG ALUMNI CHALLENGE (classes of 2009-2018)
Calling all Cavs who graduated from 2009 to 2018! Make a gift today and it will be doubled by a dollar-for-dollar match up to $1,750 AND you’ll be entered into a raffle for a $100 Amazon gift card. 
Thank you Stephen Barringer '81!

DA VACAY 
Got travel plans for this spring? Make a gift to the DA Fund today and you could win a free night to add to your vacation! The alumni class with the highest rate of participation will be entered into a drawing for a $200 Marriott gift card.

RUNAWAY WITH DURM SWAG 
If you were as sad as we were to hear that local retail and lifestyle brand Runaway was closing its doors, don’t worry — we managed to snag some swag! Alumni who make a gift between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. will be entered in two drawings for some DURM gear!

TEACHER APPRECIATION COOKIES
If you give a teacher a cookie… it’ll sweeten their day! Make a gift in honor of your favorite teacher/staff member/coach today and we’ll deliver a delicious DA-themed cookie for them to enjoy with a note that includes your name and class year!

LOCAL YOGURT CHALLENGE   
Pre-k through grade 12 parents — make a gift to the DA Fund today and the class with the highest rate of participation wins a Local Yogurt truck party!

Make a gift, spread the word, challenge your friends to give and give DA a shout out on social by sharing why you're all in for #DAGivingDay                                         

EVERY. GIFT. COUNTS.
