Annual Fund

Overview

Country Day
Annual Fund

Each year, all members of our community are asked to make a tax-deductible gift to the Country Day Annual Fund. The Annual Fund contributes to the current year’s operating budget and helps pay for the everyday essentials our school needs to maintain and enhance our small class sizes, robust programming and world-class faculty.

The Country Day Annual Fund not only has an immediate impact on our students, it is our vehicle to honor and perpetuate the deep tradition of philanthropy at Country Day. Gifts of every size from faculty, staff, parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and students make a difference and shout our Country Day pride!

Dear SCDS Community,

As we prepare for our end-of-year festivities, we want to take a moment to thank the Country Day community for its outstanding support of the Annual Fund. This year we reached record-breaking levels of participation! High participation benefits Country Day in multiple ways. Not only does it empower us to expand programming, fund innovation and collaboration, and bring new and inspiring faculty to campus, it reinforces the life-changing power of a Country Day education.

This year’s Annual Fund supported the following initiatives:

  • Student Centered Support
  • Faculty Professional Growth
  • Community Engagement
