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 - here.




Join Panthers worldwide to support and celebrate PDS for the annual Day of Giving on May 5! Your gift on May 5 can help unlock over $100,000 in challenges that will multiply the impact of your generosity and provide unparalleled opportunities for our students, ensuring that PDS can continue to provide an exceptional education for the students of today and tomorrow. 

Our Goal:
 
Our goal of 722 donors, represents the number of current Princeton Day School families. Strong partnerships with our families enrich our community and are the foundation of a successful experience for PDS students – yesterday, today and tomorrow.


Thank a teacher: 
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. Current faculty or staff members with gifts made in their honor will receive a PDS cookie with a note that you honored them with a gift.
