CDS Class Gifts
Class gifts are a wonderful tradition that allows CDS’ graduating classes to make a positive impact on the future of our students.
Class of 2020: Hand-washing Stations & Endowment for Sliding Scale Scholarship
The Class of 2020 used their class gift to purchase and install hand-washing stations for the yard at 333 Dolores and the roof deck and lobby at 601. These sinks enable students to practice good hygiene before class and lunch and during play.
The Class of 2020 also continued the tradition of contributing to the CDS Endowment for Sliding Scale Scholarship, which enables CDS to continue growing our endowment dedicated to sliding scale scholarships. Many current and prospective families have been adversely affected by the devastating economic impact of COVID-19, and the endowment is a long-term rainy-day fund that will enable CDS to sustain its commitment to socio-economic diversity during crises like these.
Our goals for the class gift are to obtain 100% participation from the graduating class parents and to raise support for the CDS Endowment. 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.
Don’t forget that 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).
