This year’s Party for a Purpose celebrates all that makes The Haverford School the very best! With a champagne reception, drinks, dining, Best of the Fords Awards and a fabulous Vanity Fair-style after-party, this Gala is shaping up to be an exciting celebration of the Haverford Community. 

Ways to be involved

Join us for a night to remember!

Purchase Tickets

Support the Campaign for the Fords Brotherhood

This year, our “paddle raise” is dedicated to raising funds to support the Fords Brotherhood Experiences, which are experiences like field trips, Xcursion days, and leadership training that the boys get to experience with each other outside of the classroom. These Fords Brotherhood Experiences build bonds that last a lifetime, and we want to encourage the entire school community to show support! Donations are accepted at any level, from $1 to whatever you might be comfortable giving, and the class with the highest level of participation by percentage will receive a Ford Award at the Party for a Purpose! 

Donate to the Brotherhood Initiative

Become a sponsor

Corporate and individual sponsorships are available, at various levels, with tickets to the Gala and the Patron’s Party and recognition throughout the Haverford community.
