Fathers & Friends

Welcome to the delbarton Fathers & Friends: a social, spiritual, and service organization 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. Our goal is 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, harvesting with America's Grow-a-Row, the Spring Golf Outing, and 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.

As you have probably said to your 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

About 10% of the annual operating budget comes from gifts to the Delbarton Fund, gifts that are made every year by parents, alumni, and friends. Together, tuition and the Delbarton Fund are the foundation of daily life at Delbarton, transforming the educational experience for every student every day.

Distinct from fundraising for strategic priorities or donations to St. Mary’s Abbey, gifts to the Delbarton Fund add up to about $2,420 per student and are used exclusively to support school programs and facilities.

The Delbarton Fund sustains the program of excellence that has come to define Delbarton School.

Your participation in the Delbarton Fund matters most. All funds raised this year will be spent this year. Every gift, large or small, directly enriches each student’s Delbarton experience every day of the year. Last year, 67% of parents contributed to the School, generously donating nearly $1M to the Delbarton Fund.

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 online, by mail, or by calling the Advancement Office at 973-538-3231, ex. 3055.

Are you searching for a way you can make a big impact at Delbarton? An outstanding team of parent volunteers helps to organize the effort. The Current Parent Delbarton Fund Committee is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with their mission—spreading the word about the importance the Delbarton Fund, which supports the each and every student at Delbarton.

The time commitment is manageable—the committee has three evening meetings a year and any other work can be done on your schedule. The Kick-Off Meeting is Monday, September 23, at 7:30 p.m. in Old Main. Please join us! Questions? Contact Maria Van Kirk, Director of the Delbarton Fund, at mvankirk@delbarton.org.
