The Charging Forward campaign represents an enduring approach to safeguarding the future of Providence Day School. It will enhance all aspects of student life every day, both inside and outside the classroom.

This is the opportunity for the community at large to participate in a comprehensive campaign that will have a tangible and lasting impact on our school. The Charging Forward campaign, at its successful completion, will be truly transformational for our students, faculty, alumni, and entire PDS community.

“Providence Day School is a top performing school and a valuable asset to the greater Charlotte community. We are a proud Charger family, and the Charging Forward campaign will ensure other families can experience this dynamic community.”

Past Campaigns


In 1987, Providence Day School launched the Soaring to the Future Campaign. This initiative provided our campus with the McMahon Fine Arts Center which opened in 1990.

In 1997, Providence Day School launched a capital campaign called the The Campaign for Providence Day School which built the Dixon-Hemby Technology Center. The $4.2 million initiative was responsible for adding several science labs, computer labs, and the 125-seat Mosack-Lee Lecture Hall to campus.

In 2000, Providence Day launched the Tomorrow Begins Today Campaign. Not only did the $15.5 million effort support the construction of the Thompson-Jones Library and the Mosack Athletic Center, but it also supported the school’s endowment and Annual Fund.

In 2005, the Building the Foundations for Life Campaign raised $2.35 million to make significant improvements to the Brinkley Family Dining Hall as well as the McMahon Fine Arts Center.
