Today’s children are the future of tomorrow. The Annual Fund is one of the most powerful means through which we can invest in a Philosophy Day School education. Your gift has an immediate impact on the day-to-day operations of the school, supporting the costs for talented faculty, enhanced athletics, arts, dramatic productions, extracurricular activities, financial aid and professional development.
Philosophy Day School, like every independent school in this country, depends on annual giving to meet the real cost of educating students. Our goal is to keep tuition low, but sustaining that goal requires your on-going participation. Year after year, the Philosophy Day Annual Fund bridges this gap.
Each donation, no matter its size, truly makes a difference. Collectively the impact is enormous. Philosophy Day families and friends are asked to contribute to the best of their ability. Annual Fund gifts have ranged from $10 to $100,000. We hope that people will give generously, but it is critical that everyone, especially parents, participate in some way.
Every gift is important because it is a gift of participation, which signals both a vote of confidence in our school and the best way to send an important message of commitment to the community, including the foundations, corporations and business to which we apply for support. We ask that you make the Philosophy Day Annual Fund a philanthropic priority each year. While early participation is encouraged, gifts may be made at any time prior to the end of the School year.
Recognizing the importance of educating our community’s children is an investment in everyone’s future. We invite you to help us make a difference in the lives of all the boys and girls at Philosophy Day, who in turn will take their knowledge and love out into the world.
The gold standard is the foundation of a Philosophy Day education. Invest in your children's future today.
