The Dover Sherborn Education Fund sponsors two main fundraising events per year in order to fund educational grants. These are a fall gala and a February phonathon.
DSEF Fall Gala
The Dover Sherborn Education Fund’s annual Fall Gala is usually held in early November and is a truly special evening whereby the parents come together not only to socialize and enjoy themselves, but also to support the Dover Sherborn Regional Schools and this fundraiser. The Fall Gala is one of the primary means of raising funds to support the numerous grant requests that come from the educators at Chickering Elementary School in Dover, Pine Hill Elementary School in Sherborn, Dover Sherborn Middle School and Dover Sherborn High School.
The event, spectacularly well attended by parents from both the Dover and Sherborn communities, has been held at such venues as the Wellesley Country Club, and the Dedham Golf and Polo Club. Included in the night’s activities are many fun and one of a kind silent auction items, and opportunities to socialize with friends old and new.
With over $3 million raised since its inception, DSEF continues to enhance art, technology, science, athletics, cultural enrichment and core academic curriculum in the Dover Sherborn Regional Schools. This funding goes beyond the scope of each school’s tax supported budget to provide extraordinary opportunities for the children.
DSEF February Phonathon
The Dover Sherborn Education Fund’s Annual Phonathon is held during a Monday and Tuesday in the early part of February.
During the early evening hours, volunteer parents with children in the Dover Sherborn regional school system make calls to the parents of students, past and present, on behalf of DSEF for its annual appeal. The Phonathon is DSEF’s largest fundraiser.
DSEF funds grant requests which are presented by the facility and administration from all four DS schools with awards announced in the spring timeframe.
DSEF is proud to support our schools and enrich the education of our children. We greatly appreciate the support of the Dover and Sherborn communities. If you have not already done so, please consider supporting DSEF during the Phonathon.
All donations to the DSEF Phonathon are tax-deductible. DSEF would like to thank everyone in advance for their support in enhancing our children’s education.
