With only 25 more contributors to the annual appeal, the DCA will reach our goal of 300 donors – and a group of “Friends of the DCA” will contribute an additional $10,000 to the campaign.

Your donation of any amount by February 29 will help us meet this challenge grant and unlock another $10,000 for the DCA. Can we count on you to reach this 300 donor target?   

Thank you to those who have already donated to this year’s appeal.

As a 100% privately-funded nonprofit that receives no support from the Town of Darien, we rely on your generosity to fulfill our mission.

With the help of strong donor support, the DCA:

  • Awarded $65,000 in college scholarship grants to Darien High School graduates last year
  • Sponsors outstanding programming such as our Academic Lecture Series on China, bestselling authors Patricia Marx/Roz Chast and John Carreyrou, and our Darien Neighbors, Global Players speaker series featuring Steve Mandel, SE Cupp and Ian Murray
  • Serves over 1800 customers each month at our DCA Thrift Shop
  • Shares our four acre DCA Bird Sanctuary and Nature Trail with numerous community groups
  • Hosts many events in our beautiful historic mansion and gardens, which we proudly maintain as a rental venue available to the public

Over our 96 year history, the DCA has received tremendous public support. Thank you!
