Join us to celebrate the DCA’s 95th anniversary! To recognize this milestone, our annual appeal goal is $100,000 (a 20% increase), and we have an exciting incentive to achieve this important fundraising target.

A group of “Friends of the DCA” have committed to match any new donor’s gift, or last year donor’s gift increase, up to $250, through the end of December.    

  •    Contribute by November 30 and the match will be 2:1
  •    Contribute by December 31 and the match will be 1:1

The DCA impacts the community in so many ways. In the last year alone, the DCA:

  • Awarded more than $60,000 in college scholarship grants to Darien High School graduates
  • Sponsored outstanding programming such as bestselling author Amor Towles and our Academic and Art Lecture Series
  • Served over 1600 customers each month at our DCA Thrift Shop
  • Shared our four acre bird sanctuary with numerous children’s groups
  • Hosted many nonprofit fundraisers in our beautiful historic mansion and gardens, which we proudly maintain as an event venue available to the public.

The DCA is 100% privately-funded and receives no support from the Town of Darien. We rely on your generosity to fulfill our mission. Thank you!
