Country Day Fund

Overview

The Country Day Fund

THE 2020-21 COUNTRY DAY FUND

Each year, all members of our community are asked to make a tax-deductible gift to the Country Day Fund. The Country Day 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 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.

  • Area of Greatest Need
  • Athletics and Physical Education
  • Faculty Support and Professional Development
  • Innovation & Technology
  • Inclusion, Diversity & Equity
  • Performing and Visual Arts
  • Tuition Assistance​

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

Annual Fund Impact Report 2019-20

Dear Country Day Community,

In 2019-20, more than any other year, we experienced unparalleled change. Back in September we had no idea what the academic year would look like at its end, yet because of support from donors like you, we were able to quickly pivot to online learning. Despite being apart physically for a large portion of the school year, our community came together to support each other in new and creative ways.

With your help, Country Day was able to create a Community Fund to aid students and their families experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic. Creating and maintaining community has always been a central focus for our school, yet we never would have known how we would all be called to demonstrate our commitment to ensure that our community remains strong.
