Spring Fundraiser

Each spring, our community comes together at our spring fundraiser to celebrate and show our support for CDS. This year, we are reimagining this event! Join us for our 2021 Spring Fling Festival, which takes place from Friday, April 23 to Sunday, May 2 and will feature a Dance-A-Thon, a series of fun, community-building events, and a virtual paddle raise. As in years past, our spring fundraiser will benefit our sliding scale tuition program, a key factor in making CDS the vibrant and inclusive community we love.

There are three ways to enjoy the fun this spring:

Raise your Paddle for Students

Virtual Paddle Raise for Students: Our online Fund-A-Need will directly benefit sliding scale tuition (nearly $3.5 million strong) and kicks off at the Dance-A-Thon. We invite you to raise your virtual paddle all week long for students! By raising your paddle, you strengthen CDS’ commitment to socio-economic diversity. Sliding scale tuition greatly enhances our community; it allows us to find families and students who deeply believe in our Mission, Beliefs, and Values. Differences truly lift us! Check out the teaser for our Fund A Need video below.

Buy Tickets for Online Events and Merch

Online Event Offerings: Curate your Spring Fling Festival event schedule! Choose from a variety of virtual community event offerings--for adults, families and children--ranging from trivia night to wine and paint sessions. These events take place on the weekends of April 23-25 and April 30-May 2, with tickets going on sale Monday, April 5.  

Join our Dance-A-Thon

Family-Friendly Dance-A-Thon: Featuring guest teacher and student DJs spinning the greatest hits to inspire your best dance moves! Students commit to dancing for 30 minutes to an hour straight. Your friends and family can “sponsor” your child(ren)’s dance moves or be part of your grade’s Dance-A-Thon team to raise funds for a good cause. Dance for CDS Teachers -- all proceeds from the Dance-A-Thon benefit professional development for CDS faculty and staff. The Dance-A-Thon event will kick off the festival on the evening of Friday, April 23

If you have questions, please reach out to Serena at advancement@cds-sf.org. Mark your calendar now and get ready for lots of fun events to inspire and connect with each other. Thank you for supporting our students, our teachers, and our sliding scale tuition program!
