Thank you to our 2015-2016 Donors

We are grateful to the members of the Dunham community who contributed $2,524,170 during the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Each gift, no matter the size, directly impacted the lives of our students, faculty, and staff and enhanced our academic, fine arts, and athletic programs.  The 2015-2016 Annual Report is now available online.  If you would like a printed copy mailed to you, please email Director of Advancement Kinch Cato at .

Supporting Dunham

The mission of The Dunham School is to provide students with the opportunity for a college preparatory education set in the framework of Christian instruction and example.  An engaged and supportive school community is essential to advance the school’s mission and to realize its vision.

As an independent school without financial support from any church or denomination, Dunham operates solely on tuition and gift income. Tuition dollars are allocated to meet the basic operational needs, but we cannot stop at just covering the basics.  The school raises support to advance the mission in three distinct ways: Project Fundraisers such as Jubilee, Annual Giving Campaign, and Capital Giving including building campaigns and the endowment campaign.

Faculty/staff, trustees, parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends—YOU are the foundation of our Dunham community.  Being a part of the Dunham family means being involved with the Dunham family.  Using your gifts, talents and your interests to serve the school in a tangible way is another way to invest in Dunham.  The more you serve the school, the more you become part of the fabric of the Dunham community.

The three ways we raise support for Dunham are through our Annual Giving Campaign, our Pillars of Purpose Campaign, and our project fundraisers.

It would my pleasure to visit with you about supporting The Dunham School. Please feel free to contact me via email or via phone at (225) 768-7097 ext. 385.

Thank you for your interest in investing in excellence at The Dunham School!
