Support This Initiative


The fundraising progress to date has been both remarkable and inspiring, thanks to generous support from the Board of Trustees and members of the Dexter Southfield community. The School has raised over $12.3 million toward its $12.6 million goal - and now we need your help to finish funding the project. Your gift will allow us to complete and fully equip the facility, and to open by next winter. This is truly a community-wide effort, and we hope you join us supporting the Athletics and Wellness Initiative.

As we strive for "our best today," help us create a better tomorrow for our students.  Join the community-wide effort for the Athletics and Wellness Initiative by making a gift today.
