Funds to Support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We commit to incorporating diverse perspectives, materials, and experiences in and out of the classroom to cultivate a culture of belonging for every student. These funds support programs that foster an appreciation of different cultures, combat bias, and promote genuine understanding and acceptance of others.
Established in 2010 by alumni parents Allison and Lex Birney to fund programming that supports the exploration and celebration of diversity. Click here for more about the Birney Appreciating Differences Program.


Established in 1990 in honor of Distinguished Alumni Leroy M. Sparks ‘71.  Mr. Sparks was the first Black student to attend and graduate from Severn School. Click here to learn more.
