The work of the Dedham Community Association relies heavily on the generosity of local residents and businesses. Your donations of time and money allow for the continuation and expansion of our valuable community programs, as well as for the upkeep of our historic facilities. Any amount is welcome.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today!
Unrestricted and Annual Appeal gifts allow DCH the most flexibility, but donations to specific funds are also welcome:
Cindy Nemet Toddler Playground Fund: Help us honor retiring DCH Preschool Director Cindy Nemet for her 20 years of service to DCH and hundreds of local families. Contributions to this fund will allow us to build and name in Cindy's honor a new developmentally appropriate toddler play area that will enhance the experience of DCH toddlers for years to come!
DCH Scholarship Fund: DCH strives to expand access to all of its programs through scholarships and financial aid for its summer camp, preschool and school-year classes and vacation camps. Whether teaching children to share, swim, or babysit, DCH offers a multitude of programs that benefit families throughout the year. Your gift to the DCH Scholarship Fund helps ensure that these valuable programs are accessible to all members of our community.
Capital Improvement Fund: Preserving DCH’s historic buildings is an important priority of the organization both for their historic value and for the endurance of the community programs they house. We are committed to completing overdue repairs and to undertaking necessary ongoing maintenance to ensure the longevity of these community resources. With the help of a preservation consultant, DCH has developed an estimated $200,000 multi-year plan to complete necessary repairs to the exterior of Haven House (1795) and The William Bullard House (1856). Your gift to the Capital Improvement Fund will help ensure that these beautiful historic homes continue to be an asset to this community for generations to come.
