How to Give

Giving Online

Giving online is one of the easiest ways to donate or pledge.

Other Ways to Give

We appreciate your interest in making Children’s Day School a philanthropic priority. We are a 501c(3) organization, and all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Our tax ID number is 94-3248631. If you have any questions about giving, please contact the Advancement Office at (415) 861-5432 x330.

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 donors 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 if 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. Click here for a list of employers who match.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support Children’s Day School. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. If you already benefit from donor-advised funds, please make checks payable to Children’s Day School. For more information, contact Jeanna Yoo at or 415-861-5432 x323.

CDS welcomes donations through United Way; our United Way number is 1146691. You may also need our tax ID (EIN number), which is 94-3248631.
