We also accept many other forms of donations:

Cash Donations
Make a gift any time with cash, personal check, cashier’s check, or money order made payable to Children’s Day School and delivered to the Advancement Office at 333 Dolores Street, San Francisco, CA, 94110.  Please be sure to include your gift designation (e.g. Annual Fund, 601 Dolores Capital Campaign, etc.).

Appreciated Stocks & Securities
Giving appreciated securities - stocks, bonds and mutual funds - benefits both the donor and CDS. In most cases, donors receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the security and do not have to pay capital gains tax on the transfer of securities that have been held for at least a year.

Matching Gifts
Companies will often match gifts to CDS. All CDS supporters are encouraged to find out whether their employers, or those of their friends and families, have matching gift programs. Each company has its own guidelines, but many will match gifts annually. If your employer offers a matching program, your donation can be greatly increased. We’ve received matching gifts from all of the following companies:

  • Apple 
  • BlackRock
  • Clif Bar
  • Dell
  • Gap
  • Genentech
  • Google
  • Levi Strauss & Co.
  • PG&E
  • Salesforce
  • Visa
  • Wells Fargo
  • Yahoo
  • Zynga
