The Darlington Fund

Every gift counts.

Your gift to The Darlington Fund allows us to graduate young men and women that are prepared to be successful, mindful, contributing citizens of the world. Donations are used in the school year they are received, bridging the gap between tuition and the true cost of the Darlington experience. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students.

Ways to Give

The Darlington Fund is the school’s top fundraising priority because it provides for every aspect of the Darlington experience. Gifts may be designated to specific areas, including the Faculty Development Fund, the Learning Center Fund, the Financial Aid Fund, or to Darlington's area of greatest need. You can make your contribution one of four ways.

“I enrolled as a student at Darlington three decades ago. It was here that I learned how to learn. During my teaching career, I have worked to provide that same experience for my students. Years ago, people gave to Darlington so that students like me could benefit. Today, I give so that someone else can benefit in the future.”

“I realized the importance of giving to The Darlington Fund after seeing the amount of money it takes to run the school and what it takes to be able to offer our students opportunities that most schools only dream of. Tuition does not cover all of the extras that our students receive. It is important to remember that giving to The Darlington Fund is vital.”

Allison (Hunter) Brooks (’79, LD '14)
