Annual Fund

The 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 the Annual Fund to provide an education above and beyond the cost of tuition. Your generous support makes it possible to attract accomplished teachers, offer an innovative curriculum, and enhance our exceptional programs 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, six-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!

Corporate Matching | Double Your Donation

 
Corporate matching gift programs are the means by which many companies support the charitable giving of their employees and fulfill their own philanthropic goals. 

Generally the process is very simple and often can be completed online through your company. Check the Corporate Matching List here to see if your company can "double your donation" to PCDS. If your employer is not listed, ask your HR department if your company has a matching gift program or is willing to create one; new programs are created each year. 
 
Corporate matching is an easy way to allow your gift to Park City Day School to have an even greater impact.
