Special Events

Dallas Academy participates in numerous fundraising efforts throughout the academic year which support the children and programs of Dallas Academy. Every dollar raised will have a direct impact on the education of a Dallas Academy student. Unfortunately, tuition dollars cover only part of the cost needed to educate a child. In order to bridge the financial gap and preserve the many programs that serve our children, we are asking that you join Dallas Academy in supporting our fundraising efforts. Dallas Academy strives to keep our classes small, our educational tools advanced, our programming relevant, and to maintain the best teachers in the classroom. The success of Dallas Academy is dependent upon the generosity of our friends and families. We appreciate your support in this important mission.

The DAwg Run 

Dallas Academy hosts the annual DAwg Run each November on campus and at White Rock Lake. Dallas Academy families and friends are invited to participate in this fun-filled, family event which includes 5K race, 1 mile fun run, pet costume contest, games, and a bounce house.  All of the proceeds from the day will benefit the students of Dallas Academy through scholarships, student services, and increased campus technology. The event annually draws a crowd of more than 300 runners and net proceeds total approximately $30,000.

Golf Tournament and Auction 

The Dallas Academy “Go for the Green” golf tournament and auction takes place each spring for the Dallas Academy community. The event includes an opportunity to compete in a golf tournament during the day and then enjoy an evening of dinner, dancing, and bidding on a variety of exciting auction items. Proceeds benefit the student scholarship fund as well as the academic programs of Dallas Academy.

Annual Fund Campaign 

The Annual Fund Campaign raises over $80,000 annually with a bigger goal of reaching 100% participation by the families, faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees of Dallas Academy. The funds raised support the operating budget of Dallas Academy or can be earmarked for a program of your choice.

The Tim Rhea Memorial Chili Cook-Off 

This chili cook-off is held each year and benefits the Dallas Academy scholarship fund. This event brings together teachers, parents and students for a fun night of music, cake walks, and great food. Trophies are awarded for best chili, hottest chili, best booth and best costume.
