Message from the Annual Fund Chairs

We are so grateful to those who have supported the Annual Fund in the past. With your help, we reached some record highs last year including 75% parent participation! More parents came together in support of our school and students than ever before. Your donations benefit all students in every division. We hope you will continue your support, and consider making a tax-deductible Annual Fund gift this year.

The success of the Annual Fund depends greatly on our Annual Fund Committee members who dedicate their time to help meet the fundraising goals set by the school. We are grateful for their leadership. Meet the Annual Fund Committee.

Annual Fund Matching Challenge

Amazing news! A Carolina Day School parent of alumni family has stepped forward and wants to help our school close this year strong. The family put forth a $25,000 commitment to our school as a challenge match for our community, which means they will match all gifts received by June 30, up to a total of $25,000!

If our community collectively rises to meet this family's generous $25,000 challenge, we are poised to both meet our goal and have the most successful year to date!

  • If you have not made a donation to this year's Annual Fund, this is a unique way to actually double your gift right now. Please help us take advantage of this transformational gift and challenge opportunity.
  • If you have already made a contribution this year and you would like to participate in this matching challenge, any and all additional gifts made to the Annual Fund between now and June 30 will count toward the match and would be greatly appreciated.

We are so grateful for the generosity of this family and for the unique opportunity to close the year strong with the help of our community. We are also grateful to our current donors, and thank you in advance for helping us take advantage of this transformational gift and challenge opportunity.
