THE PCDS ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN
Nothing is more essential to the operating budget of an independent school than the Annual Fund campaign. It is common practice for schools like us to rely upon an Annual Fund to provide an education above and beyond the cost of tuition. This year's Annual Fund Campaign is a wonderful opportunity to show you love where you learn.
Your generous support of The PCDS Annual Fund makes it possible to attract and retain accomplished teachers, offer an innovative curriculum, and enhance our core programs with specialists in science, foreign language, visual and performing arts, wellness, outdoor education, and music.
By design, The Annual Fund allows PCDS to keep tuition within reach for a broad spectrum of families, while providing a tax-deductible opportunity to those who participate. This vibrant, five-week campaign takes place each fall and helps provide the resources necessary for a rich and robust academic program.
Support of The Annual Fund ensures that a great educational experience becomes an extraordinary one. Each gift – both large and small – makes a difference in the lives of our students and teachers. We invite you to make PCDS a top priority in your philanthropic giving plans and we sincerely appreciate your support!
Park City Day School relies upon your tax-deductible annual contribution to The Annual Fund to cover costs that tuition alone does not cover. Your participation ensures that PCDS has the resources it needs to attract and retain the best teachers, and provide an outstanding curriculum – including specialty programs in STEAM, Spanish language, visual and performing arts, Round Square, wellness, and outdoor education. Gifts also bolster our Tuition Assistance Fund which fosters a more diverse population of students.
Like all independent schools, PCDS received no federal, state, or local funding, and therefore depends on the generosity of parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, and other donors to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the cost of running the school.
Each and every donation helps to make a positive impact in the life of our students and teachers, and ensures the future of our school.
