Support Us

Horizons at DCD depends on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations to keep our program running. While our host school, Dedham Country Day School, provides in-kind aid in the form of space and equipment, Horizons at DCD must raise all the funds necessary to support the general operations of the program, including bus transportation, classroom supplies, and staff salaries. We receive gifts from a variety of wonderful foundations and appreciate their support.

For Individuals

We rely on the generosity of individuals and appreciate donations of all sizes. Gifts in any amount will make a difference in the life of a child. There may be substantial tax advantages for individuals who donate through gifts of stock. We would be pleased to work with you and your financial planner to determine the type of gift that best meets your needs. All donations are tax deductible.

You can send us a check or make a contribution through securities.


Giving appreciated securities is a tax-wise way to support Horizons at DCD. For securities held longer than one year, you can deduct their full fair market value, regardless of what you originally paid for them, and you should have no capital gains tax obligation.
