One of the two key objectives of the Friends of Dulwich College is to raise money for the benefit of the boys and the College, as well as local charities.
Since September 2015, the FDC has made an annual donation of £30,000 spread equally amongst the various interest groups, academic and co-curricular, within the College. These faculties, which include the boy-led Union of Societies, were then able to plan and decide how their allocation was spent and reported back to the FDC Committee
Below are reports from four of the projects which have recently received grants from the Friends, to give you a flavour of where the money is spent.
In addition the Friends has been able to grant £95,000 to Phase 2 of The Laboratory, over the last two years, as a result of events such as the Christmas Fair and the Summer Gala Dinner & Auction
As well as enhancing the boys' experience both present and future, the Friends has also allocated funds to 12 external Charities over the last two academic years, totalling over £15,000.
