As a 100% privately-funded nonprofit that receives no support from the Town of Darien, we rely on your generosity to fulfill our mission. Based on the success of last year’s annual appeal campaign, we will once again offer a special incentive to achieve our fundraising goals.
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 $500, through the end of December.
- Contribute by December 15 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 $65,000 in college scholarship grants to Darien High School graduates
- Sponsored outstanding programming such as our Academic Lecture Series on Turkey, bestselling author Jennifer Egan and our Darien Neighbors, Global Players speaker series featuring Charlie Collier, John Osborn and Scott Pelley
- Served over 1800 customers each month at our DCA Thrift Shop
- Shared our four acre bird sanctuary with numerous community groups
- Hosted 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!
