Country Day Scholars Program

The Country Day Scholars Program provides new incoming ninth-grade students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to access the college preparatory curriculum at Sacramento Country Day High School.  

This need-based scholarship program’s goal is to bring to the Country Day High School exceptional students with notable potential in one or more of the following areas: academics, leadership, innovation, the arts, and service.

Donations to the Country Day Scholars Program are accepted year-round in addition to being highlighted during the Fund-a-Need portion of our auction. We are proud and incredibly grateful of our community’s generous support of the inaugural scholarship year, 2016-17, and look forward to continuing to raise support for each incoming class.

Annual Fund

Each year, all members of our community are asked to make a tax-deductible gift to the Country Day Annual Fund. Annual Fund contributions make an immediate impact in and beyond the classrooms and supplement the essentials our school needs to maintain our small class size, support our outstanding faculty, and enhance our robust programming.

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.

Endowment and Restricted Giving

Gifts to the Endowment strengthen the financial health and flexibility of Country Day. The SCDS Endowment is comprised of several named endowed funds, some of which were established to honor family members and friends.

Donors may also direct gifts to a particular program, project, or need. If you are interested in restricting your support to any cause not mentioned below, please contact Director of Advancement, Carolyn Woolf, at 916-481-8811 or cwoolf@saccds.org

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.
