The Annual Fund is one of Carolina Day School's most important sources of revenue.

It is a vital part of each year’s operating budget, contributing to every part of our school’s operation. Supporters of the Annual Fund allow us to go above and beyond to deliver our innovative and highly individualized education to every child, in every division, every day.

Your support of the Annual Fund is the best way you can make sure current and future CDS students continue to have an exceptional experience. No matter the size, every gift makes an impact.

Double your impact!

Two of our generous families have issued a challenge to kick off this year's Annual Fund campaign! They are willing to match new and increased gifts to the Annual fund up to $50,000! 

  • If you are a new donor to the CDS Annual Fund this year, your gift will be doubled by this challenge.
  • If you renew your gift at an increased amount, the increased amount will be doubled.

What an amazing opportunity to further help CDS and potentially double your gift!


I want to make an impact on every child, every day with a gift to the CDS Annual Fund.
