Letter from the Head of School Durham Academy is a school that strives — 

for our reimagined Middle School begins

relentlessly and joyfully — to fulfill its mission

this fall. We have already secured 100%

of preparing students for moral, happy,

support from our Board of Trustees, along

productive lives. We fulfill this mission when our students and faculty are supported by a community and are empowered to do their best work. As one of those supporters, I feel privileged to witness the lasting effects of a Durham Academy education — on 4-year-olds in our Preschool, on seniors crossing the commencement stage and on alumni across the country who gather to remember their life-changing teachers and to rekindle life-long friendships. This Annual Report documents the philanthropy that undergirds our daily work. Thanks to those listed in the pages that follow, Durham Academy raised an astounding $6,268,723 last year. This outpouring of generosity represents confidence in the institution and — more importantly — hope in the world-changing potential of our students. We celebrate a number of philanthropic milestones this year: • A campaign for Durham Academy. We have initiated a capital campaign to fund urgently needed improvements on our Ridge and Academy road campuses. The Upper School projects have sprung to life already. The first phase of construction

with several lead gifts. We are grateful to all of our early donors. You will hear more about the plans for the campaign as they develop. In the meantime, I welcome any questions about our aspirations, plans and progress. • The DA Fund. We saw record-breaking success in this annual effort. Nearly 1,500 donors gave $1,301,498 to support our dedicated faculty, academic programs and extracurricular offerings. Alumni participation reached an all-time high of 35% — well above our peer schools. A record 95% of our new parents contributed to the DA Fund this year. We are grateful to all the volunteers who helped us achieve these remarkable milestones. • The Parents Association benefit auction. This year’s Green & White Gala raised a record $270,000. Proceeds from the auction fund Parent Association's support of academic enrichment and school-wide programs that make a difference in the lives of our students every day. Thanks to our army of auction volunteers, item donors and winning bidders for their support.

“The reason we donate to DA is because the school’s core values and principles align with ours. We know that donating funds to Durham Academy will ensure the highest quality of life for the teachers, as well as the very best education for the children. We hope this will make a lasting impact not only on our own children, but future generations to come.” — Zankhna and Selene Parekh, parents of Aarav ’24, Arsh ’26 and Anaya ’29

Capital Gifts

“Making an annual gift to DA was something that I understood to be vital

We recognize and thank the donors who made payments on capital pledges this year.
