The Annual Fund Family of Funds represents the largest areas of our yearly operating budget and are intended to support our students, faculty, programs and facilities. Annual Fund donors may choose to designate their gift to a particular area of the School’s operations that they find most meaningful.
The Annual Fund Family of Funds supports our students and faculty in the current academic year through the school’s operating budget. Should designated contributions exceed a designation’s budgeted need, the school will direct contributions to the area of greatest need.
The tradition of philanthropy at PDS can be clearly seen in the enthusiastic support we receive from our faculty, staff, parents, alumni, grandparents and parents of alumni. Every gift is important, and we ask that all members of our community consider a gift that is right for each individual. The Annual Fund campaign begins on July 1 each year, and all payments are due by June 30 the following year. Gifts to the Annual Fund are tax deductible and provide immediate, unrestricted support of the school’s operating budget.
