Dawson First Society

Leadership giving provides a signal to all other donors that an Alexander Dawson School education is a valuable resource in our community. A leadership gift is a large donation made by a single person, a small set of people or a foundation that inspires others to contribute and participate. The New York Times characterized the importance of leadership gifts this way: “When a big (leadership giver) comes in, the smaller donors pay attention. It legitimizes a fund-raising project and the institution.” 
 
Dawson has established the Dawson First Society, a leadership club comprised of all leading donors. This membership club is designed to recognize our top contributors and inspire other donors. All donors at the Diamond Circle level and above are automatically made members of the Dawson First Society.
