DMP Foundation for Education

DMP Foundation for EducationThe DMP Foundation for Education is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the quality of education at Del Mar Pines School. We accomplish this by providing students and teachers with scholastic enrichment opportunities and resources― not covered by tuition.

The school works hard to keep tuition affordable for our families. As a result, there is a gap between the cost of the excellent education provided and the tuition charged. Del Mar Pines relies on the DMP Foundation For Education’s Fall Fundraising Campaign, the Spring Auction Gala and other fundraising programs to “bridge the gap”.

Through the generous support of the community, the Foundation is able to enhance the educational experience of Del Mar Pines School students specifically through a variety of functions including educational field trips, training and materials, obtaining guest lecturers, providing conferences and training for teachers, providing computers and other educational tools for students.

The DMP Foundation for Education is a charitable nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was founded by parents and school leaders in the spring of 2009. Since that time, the Foundation has made a meaningful difference to its students by supporting many aspects of their educational experience.
