Support DVFriends

We invite all members of the extended DVFriends community to get involved in supporting our school, and welcome your gifts of time, talent, and treasure. 

Want to make an impact at DVFriends right now? The DVFriends Annual Fund supports the school's greatest day-to-day needs, helping fund everything from technology in our classrooms to our robust arts and athletics programs. Or, Pennsylvania's tax credit programs (EITC and OSTC) turn your state tax dollars into scholarships for students. Both make an impact at DVFriends today, and every day.
 
Want to make a gift towards DVFriends' future? Include us in your estate plans with a Planned Gift; your gift could cost you nothing now!

Volunteer: Get involved! We invite you to share your time with DVFriends as a volunteer. Please contact Kelly Knox, Assistant Director of Community and Alumni Engagement, to express your interest and find out more about our volunteer opportunities.

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to DVFriends before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a two-fold tax benefit, creating an income tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due on their sale.
