About

Did you miss a chance to make a gift on Friday? No problem! We will be rolling in this weekend's gifts to our final totals. You can still be part of this special day for PDS - simply click here.



The PDS Day of Giving brings our community of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, faculty and friends together in support of our students and teachers. Be part of the Day of Giving by making a gift to the PDS Annual Fund on May 6th.

Our Goal: Our goal of 650 donors honors our home here at 650 Great Road, where our students have spent the year together discovering, growing, and learning and where generations of alumni, families, and faculty and staff have helped to shape Princeton Day School. On the Day of Giving, we celebrate our shared connection to this special place at 650 Great Road.

Here's how you can be a part of the Day of Giving:

  • Make a gift and encourage friends and classmates to do the same.
  • Get Social! Post the campaign link and share your PDS love on your social media with the hashtag #pdsgivingday. Like, comment, share in posts for the PDS social media channels below.  All of your posts, likes, and comments help expand the reach of this campaign.
  • Help Spread the Word! Sign Up/Sign in to GiveCampus and share the campaign via email, text and social media with just a few clicks.  Your unique links will calculate how many clicks, gifts and dollars your sharing is generating, which not only helps us get to our goal, but can earn you some great PDS swag!
  • Go Blue! Go White! Participate in a new school tradition, “Blue and White Fridays.” Wear Blue and White and show your Panther Pride. Snap a photo and post it to social media with the hashtag #pdsgivingday.

Be sure to follow the PDS social media channels:
PDS Pages: PDS Facebook  /  Instagram /  Twitter  
PDS Alumni Pages:  PDS Alums Facebook / PDS Alums Instagram

Did you know this week is National Teacher Appreciation Week? Say thank you to a teacher that has had an impact on you or your child by making your gift in his or her honor. If a gift is made in honor of a current faculty or staff member, we will deliver a special PDS themed cookie to them with a note indicating that you honored them with a gift.
