Overview

Giving Opportunities

Sacramento Country Day School gratefully receives gifts to the fundraising efforts detailed below.

Gifts can be restricted to any existing Country Day program, and any monetary gift used by the School in the fiscal year it is received can be credited toward that year’s Annual Giving.

Donations can be made as a tribute to a person during his or her lifetime or posthumously. The school will inform the honoree or the family of the gift.

Annual Giving

Country Day offers small class sizes, robust programming, a world-class faculty, and a safe, nurturing learning environment. At Country Day, all of our students are heard–and their educational needs are met. As a result of this individualized attention, our students build confidence, character, and respect for others.

Capital Giving

Capital Giving supports costly improvements to the school’s programs and physical plant. As SCDS continues to renovate and replace 1960’s temporary buildings on the Latham campus with handsome, state-of-the-art classrooms, these contributions are essential. One of the current capital projects for which the fundraising is still underway, is the beautiful new Middle School Center for Science, Mathematics, and Technology.

Endowment Giving

Gifts to the endowment strengthen the financial health and flexibility of Country Day. The principal of an endowment gift is invested, and the income generated becomes a source of revenue for general or targeted support. The SCDS endowment is comprised of several named, endowed funds, some of which were established to honor family members and friends.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are gifts made through estate planning. Around 85% of all planned gifts are made by generous donors who leave a specific dollar amount or percentage of their estate to an institution or charity that is meaningful to them. These types of bequests are incredibly powerful and wonderful statements of support. And yet, they do not cost the donor a thing during his or her lifetime.

Planned gifts to Country Day can also be made via leaving the School interest in a life insurance or retirement policy, charitable remainder trusts, or charitable lead trusts.

Gifts in Kind

SCDS welcomes donations of goods and or services that would otherwise have to be paid for by the school. Gift value is determined by an appraisal or a record of purchase.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double a donation’s value. If you have questions about your company’s matching gift program, please contact your personnel office. Please also contact Marisa Christie at mchristie@saccds.org to let her know of a matching gift so that we are prepared to process and acknowledge it promptly.
