Country Day Fund

Rising to the Forefront

Country Day Fund

The exceptional experience of a Country Day education is only possible thanks to the significant funding provided by the endowment and the Country Day Fund, our annual giving program. The Country Day Fund is our top giving priority because it directly impacts our greatest assets—our students and our teachers.

All gifts to the Country Day Fund during the 2019–20 school year counted toward the campaign total and will helped us reach our $54 million Forefront Campaign goal, including $11 million towards the Country Day Fund.

The Impact of Your Gift

  • The Country Day Fund supports 5% of the school's operating budget and impacts every student, every day.
  • Your gift ensures small class sizes, individualized attention for students, financial aid that fosters community, and professional development for our talented and dedicated faculty and staff.
  • Annual giving enables us to support the operations of our enhanced facilities.

“Watching students putting these incredible facilities to use, and knowing that our contributions have a direct impact on the outstanding program and people housed within them, makes this one of the most rewarding efforts we have ever been a part of. We are honored to rise to the forefront through our commitment to the Country Day Fund in this extraordinary year.”
