Giving to Dawson

Modeling generosity and caring for each other are important Dawson Core Beliefs. Our entire community is stronger when we ensure that extraordinary primary education is available to as many students as possible in Las Vegas. As one of only two not-for-profit, non-sectarian, independent schools in Southern Nevada, The Alexander Dawson School at Rainbow Mountain is an important community resource. 
As is the case for all non-profit schools, full tuition does not cover the entire cost of educating a child. Every year we face a “financial gap.” A gap is the difference between tuition and the actual cost of hiring and retaining extraordinary faculty, offering innovative programs and curriculum, and providing financial aid to families in need. This gap must be bridged through fundraising efforts. Dawson depends on the support of families and organizations that understand the importance of donations to any community program, including medical organizations, child support services, and education.

Additionally, volunteerism is a valuable avenue of giving. For example, the Dawson Parent Association exists to enhance the lives of our students through the organization of volunteer efforts and special events. At Dawson, everyone has an opportunity to be a community philanthropist!
Our entire community and every Dawson student directly benefits from donors’ gifts of money and time, and we greatly appreciate your support.
