The Haverford Party for a Purpose celebrates and supports the excellent educational experience The Haverford School provides for our boys. This year’s Party for a Purpose promises to be a fun and memorable evening including a cocktail reception, dining, comments from our incredible Head of School Mr. Tyler Casertano, silent and live bidding on special and unique auction items, and dancing to round it all out! Most importantly, this annual event serves to bring us together for the evening to celebrate our wonderful community. Celebrate and support Haverford with us!

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!

Become a sponsor

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

The HSPA has planned a special evening and official pre-party for the generous sponsors of this year's Party for a Purpose. On the evening of January 18, we will celebrate the Haverford Brotherhood on campus with an evening of the arts featuring festive drinks and hors d'oeuvres, musical performances from Haverford ensembles, an art show, and a sneak peek of some auction items, including Masterpieces from the Haverford Lower School classes. Invitations will be shared with sponsors soon.
