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.

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.

“I give back to Darlington because Darlington gave so much to me. Darlington exposed me to many diverse individuals and mindsets while I was a student that prepared me for what was to come after high school. Everywhere I went, I could find Darlington alumni who seemed to always be ahead of the curve and achieving to their fullest potential. No other school prepares you like Darlington.”

“I give because I think of this special place as my family and my home; you take care of your family and your home. For me it's not about the tangibles, it's about the people, the relationships, the connections, the feelings. It's about being a part of something bigger than yourself that makes you better because you are part of it. As a student here, I was Darlington and Darlington was me. I was part of a special family, I had a home. I give because I want that for my girls.”

“Twenty-six years ago, I enrolled as a student at Darlington. 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.”
