Annual Fund Leadership Dinner
Annual Fund donors that contribute at the leadership level ($3000 or above) are invited to a special celebratory dinner. Past speakers include acclaimed artist (and CDS parent) Jim Campbell and Alice Waters. This year, the Annual Fund Leadership Dinner will take place in early 2017.

Fiesta is CDS’s Annual Spring Auction and Community Celebration, usually held in mid March, that supports sliding scale tuition. For more information on this celebration, visit our Fiesta page. 

Fiesta is a great community-building event. We need the support from the entire CDS community in the form of volunteer time, auction donations of items and experiences, and sponsorships. Whether you’re able to chair a committee, write copy, design materials, help set up the day of the event  or volunteer to sell raffle tickets one morning during drop-off, there are jobs of all sizes to make the event a continued success. Please consider being one of our Fiesta volunteers. Simply email our advancement team and we’ll find the perfect role for you.

Please contact the Advancement Department at or (415) 861-5432 x330 for more information about any of these events.
