First and foremost in Delbarton’s fundraising activities is the
. This annual fundraising effort provides essential operating funds to support all areas of the School, including faculty compensation and professional development, financial aid, academic programs, athletics, arts and instructional resources.
The Delbarton Fund is necessary to sustain the program of excellence that has come to define Delbarton School.
An outstanding team of volunteers from Delbarton’s Fathers and Friends helps to organize the parent effort. Volunteers make calls, send personal notes and e-mails, and participate at phonathons to encourage all families to make a commitment to the Delbarton Fund. Every gift is important, and indicates that everyone is sharing the expense of providing the best possible education for Delbarton students. Gifts range from $5 to $25,000.
Last year, 83% of parents contributed to the School, generously donating over $1M to the Delbarton Annual Fund. This year, our goal is 100% participation, and we need everyone's support to get there: large or small, every gift counts. The Delbarton year runs from July 1 – June 30, so if you have not yet made a gift, please consider doing so today! Donations can be made by mail, online, or by calling the Development Office at 973-538-3231, ex. 3055.
