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!

Donors can choose to designate their gift to the particular area of the operational budget that they find most meaningful.

  • Performing and Visual Arts
  • Athletics and Physical Education
  • Faculty Support and Professional Development

Should designated contributions exceed a designation’s budgeted need, the school will direct the gift to the area of greatest need. The Country Day Annual Fund opens on July 1 each year, and all payments are due by June 30 the following year.

Annual Fund Impact Report 2017-18

Dear SCDS Community,

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life.

Philanthropy at Country Day takes many forms. It is evident in the many hours our parents dedicate to serve as volunteers, in the commitment of our students to find meaningful ways to impact the world around them, and in our burgeoning service learning program that both teaches and models care for others. I am grateful for the generosity of spirit that permeates our campus.

There are numerous causes to contribute to in our community, and we are thankful you have  selected Country Day as worthy of your support. This year was the second year of record-breaking parent participation in our Annual Fund. Thank you for your trust in us as we work to fulfill the Country Day mission to “inspire intellectual discovery and engage a diverse community to think critically, live creatively, and act compassionately.”

This year we provided for the following designations within our Annual Fund.
