PDS Day of Giving 2020

This campaign ended on May 10, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Princeton Day School by clicking here!

Please Note:
Although our Day of Giving is Friday, May 8th, to make the campaign more accessible for many of us who are having trouble telling our days apart, this campaign will remain open through 11:59 Sunday, May 10th.

May 8, 2020 is the fourth annual Day of Giving at PDS!

Princeton Day School is an extraordinary place.  Spending the last 7 weeks away from our home on the Great Road highlights the fact that the magic isn’t in our building’s walls or our beautiful campus, it is in our people.  We see it in the dedication of our teachers who continue to provide an enriching school experience, in our students, who show resilience and grit and continue to come together to maintain the PDS sense of community, and in our alumni, who are out in the world giving back to communities near and far.

Rising to meet challenges - this is the Princeton Day School we know and love. Today, we ask you to help sustain our wonderful school with a gift to the Annual Fund. Our mission to educate, inspire and shape growing minds remains unchanged, and your support helps ensure that our students continue to benefit from a PDS education that equips them to lead, contribute to their communities, and to make a difference in our world. If you are in a position to support the school this year, thank you. 

Thank you, in advance, for your commitment to Princeton Day School. 

Our Goal

Today your gift can go even farther and help us unlock a $50,000 gift from Curtis McGraw Webster '75. Our Day of Giving goal of 331 gifts represents one gift for every teacher, advisor, coach, and staff member - the individuals who remain at the heart of the Princeton Day School student experience.
