Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is the heart of PCDS’ philanthropic community.  Each year, the Annual Fund raises funds to provide the resources our School needs to offer our students an education that emphasizes intellectual engagement, independence, collaboration, creativity, and integrity.

  We ask our community to participate in the Annual Fund, which allows us to…. 

  • Attract and hire the very best teachers from a national applicant pool
  • Provide unique programs like Robotics and Speech & Debate
  • Distinguish ourselves as one of the most respected schools in the nation 
  • Grow our alumni network with a strong outreach and mentorship program

Last year, 100% of our faculty and staff gave to the Annual Fund, as did 100% of our Trustees, 100% of our Alumni Board, and 77% of our current parents. 

Our goal is to continue to increase participation from our PCDS community and ask for your participation today. 

To be eligible for a tax-deduction for the 2017 year, please make your donation by December 31, 2017.  

Everyone can participate. And we hope you do. 


Gratefully yours,
