DPGA

Delbarton Parents of Graduates (DPGA)

The DPGA was established in 1985 by Rev. Stephen Findlay O.S.B. in response to the requests of former Delbarton parents for an organization to help them stay in touch with their Delbarton friends, and with Delbarton /St. Mary’s Abbey. DPGA organizes ‘fun-raising’ activities that preserve and enhance relationships among former Delbarton parents, and promotes the welfare and support of Delbarton School. If you are a former Delbarton parent we invite you to join us!

Fathers & Friends

Welcome to the Fathers & Friends of Delbarton, a social, spirit, and service organization that consists of all fathers of current Delbarton students. Our motto, That here, we belong, reflects our desire to ensure that all fathers can experience Delbarton.

OUR PURPOSE

Delbarton is not just a school, it's an experience. Fathers & Friends offers you multiple ways to get involved with Delbarton. It is our goal that by the time your son graduates you can also say that you were part of the Delbarton experience.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Fathers & Friends hosts events every month, from Poker Night, America's Grow-a-Row, Spring Golf Outing, to networking events. Please view our calendar of events for details. In addition, our monthly meetings are open to all fathers. While these are business meetings, there is a social and networking component to ensure that we all get to know one another a little better.

If there is one thing that cannot be emphasized enough, which is probably the same thing we have each said to our son at one point or another, what you put into it, is what you'll get out of it. Please consider getting involved with the Fathers & Friends, you'll be glad you did.

Supporting Delbarton

Supporting Delbarton

First and foremost in Delbarton’s fundraising activities is the Delbarton Fund. 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.
