About Us

Since its creation in 1994, the Dobbs Ferry Schools Foundation has raised over $4.5 million through individual contributions, as well as public and private grants. Started by a handful of dedicated parents, the DFSF is now a working board of community members who partner with the faculty and staff of the district.

The DFSF Board selects programs for funding that support the strategic goals of our district. Whether the programs target a specific grade or an entire school, the end result is a stronger, richer community of learners. From technology to the arts to reading, writing and arithmetic, the DFSF supports diverse programs that advance student learning.

DFSF MISSION

To be a partner in the development of an outstanding system of public education by promoting excellence in all aspects of learning.
