The Country Day Fund

50 Days of Giving
September 1-October 20

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!

For more information, please contact Director of Advancement, Rachelle Doyle at 916.481.8811 ext. 311 or

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.
