About


Unite with fellow Panthers worldwide to support and celebrate PDS during the annual Day of Giving on May 2! Your gift will go even further by helping unlock over $100,000 in challenges that will amplify the impact of your generous philanthropy. Funds raised on the Day of Giving support the PDS Annual Fund, which provides resources for every area of the student-life that culminates in the exceptional PDS experience for all current and future Panthers. Together, we can ensure that PDS will continue to offer unparalleled opportunities for our students.

Our Goal: Our goal of 738 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.

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.

Here is how you can participate in the Day of Giving:

  • GIVE! Make a gift and encourage your PDS network to do the same. Give to the area of the school or in honor of someone that is meaningful to you. 
  • SHARE!
    • Get Social! Post the campaign link and share why you love and support PDS on social media with the hashtag #pdsdayofgiving. Like, comment, and share posts from the PDS social media channels below. Your engagement helps 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 gifts your sharing is generating - helping us get to our goal and may earn you some PDS swag!
