Each year, the eighth-grade class presents a gift to the school upon graduation. The gift is a symbol of the class' gratitude to the school and commitment to the future generations of CDS students. The Class of 2022 will purchase a ceramic kiln to live at our 601 campus and support ongoing costs associated with its operation. Additionally, the class gift will allow the school to purchase kiln furniture, shelving, and art supplies such as clay, glaze, and tools.
The Class of 2022 will also bolster CDS' unique arts program. Additional funds will be allocated to an art program fund that will encourage creative thinking and expand the artistic reach of our students. Strengthening our art program will not only benefit CDS students for years to come but also allow our community partners to utilize the space and equipment, which aligns with CDS’ community values.
Our goal is to reach 100% participation from the graduating class parents in support of the kiln, associated items, and restricted art fund. To make a gift, you can donate online, send in a check payable to Children’s Day School, or contact Director of Advancement Jeanna Yoo at 415-861-5432 x323 or firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
If your employer matches charitable donations, your gift could double in size. You might also consider making a gift of appreciated stock, as that may provide greater tax benefits from your donation (specifically, avoidance of capital gains tax on the transfer), or make a gift from a donor-advised fund.
