Annual Fund

Annual Fund moves the school forward to take us beyond the basics of a traditional education; it enables CDS to prepare students with habits and skills that will serve them well both during college and in 21st-century jobs that can’t yet even be imagined.

Answers to common questions about Annual Fund:

  • Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference. We need your participation. It takes all of us, doing our part, to move our school forward.

  • Gifts of $2,500 and above are considered leadership gifts.

  • You may make a gift online here. Please make a pledge or gift by December 31, 2016. Pledges made now count toward our goal and may be fulfilled in payments up until June 30, 2017.

Together, our annual fund gifts provide the foundation for CDS to develop our children as confident learners and capable doers.


Why I Give


"At Carolina Day School, the parents are all in. An important measure of our strength as a community is parent participation as supporters of the Annual Fund. Teachers are preparing our kids in creative ways for jobs that don't yet exist. The Annual Fund helps make that kind of engagement possible."
