At CDS, we encourage philanthropic community ownership and investment in our school. Like other non-profit schools, CDS relies on donations as well as tuition to fund classroom programs, support sliding scale tuition and upgrade our historic campus. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating a child, and fundraising is essential to keep CDS, its programs and people, strong. We ask all families, friends, staff, and faculty to make a meaningful financial contribution to CDS. For each fundraising initiative, every donation counts.
The CDS community is very generous, and our goal is 100% parent participation every year for each initiative. We encourage families to make CDS their top philanthropic priority. We sincerely appreciate each gift and the spirit that such generosity fosters in our community.
The three initiatives for which CDS raises money are:
- The Annual Fund - The Annual Fund is our most important fundraising effort each year and provides vital resources to keep our core programs running. Annual Fund donations enable our teachers to implement best practices in the classroom and support the academic growth of our students. Donate now to the Annual Fund!
- Spring Fundraiser - Our annual celebration benefiting our sliding scale tuition program. Stay tuned for more details.
- Capital Campaign - Periodic capital campaigns fund major facilities additions or enhancements to our historic campus.
