The Fund for Country Day

Country Day's Top Giving Priority

The Fund for Country Day is the cornerstone of our School's annual fundraising efforts and helps bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating a student and tuition. 

Every gift truly counts—no matter the size. Each year, donors provide over $600,000 of flexible, unrestricted, budget-relieving dollars. These funds allow SCDS to respond to ever-changing circumstances and to say “YES!” to new opportunities for students and faculty as they arise during the school year.

All members of the Country Day community - alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, trustees, faculty and staff membersare encouraged to support The Fund annually.

As a donor, you are an important partner in carrying out the Savannah Country Day mission to prepare students of academic and personal promise to meet with confidence, imagination, and integrity the challenges of college and of life.
 
  • Gifts or pledges can be easily made through our secure online giving page or via the Venmo app by searching for @SCDS-TheFund.

  • You may mail your gift to the School at 824 Stillwood Drive, Savannah, GA 31419. 

  • Gifts to The Fund for Country Day are tax-deductible as allowed by law. 
  • The Fund for Country Day campaign begins each year on July 1st.  Payments are due by June 30th the following year.
