Celebrate every child.  Challenge every learner.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is Charlottesville Day School’s most important fundraising instrument.

Annual giving makes it possible for CDS to offer exceptional programs for our students, attract and retain great teachers, improve our buildings and property, and augment financial aid.

We seek broad participation in meeting this shared responsibility each year.  Gifts at all levels are valued and needed. The school requests gifts that are meaningful and within each donor’s means.

Gifts can be unrestricted and thereby allow the Head of School the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities, meet challenges, and prioritize line items in the operating budget.  Alternatively, gifts can be specifically allocated by the donor to the school’s Angel Fund scholarship program. To learn more about the Angel Fund, please email Stacey Bruns.

CDS could not do what it does without the consistent support of our community.  We are grateful for your generosity!  Thank you!
