Long-term Financial Health at the Forefront

Growing the strength of our endowment was a key part of the comprehensive Forefront Campaign. Through the campaign efforts, devoted and generous parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends established 14 new endowed funds. Our endowment is the largest among independent schools in North Carolina, distinguishing our leadership and culture of philanthropy.

$9.71 million was raised in endowment support to ensure Country Day's long-term strength and stability.

The Sherrill and Branstrom families created The Calvin Davis Endowed Scholarship Fund in their quest to honor long-time tennis program coach Calvin Davis and his impact at Country Day. This endowed fund ensures Country Day students will continue to experience the legendary impact of Coach Davis for generations to come.
