Investing in Park Day School: The importance of voluntary support

Contributions and income from fundraising events are direct investments in what Park Day School offers students and the community in our core educational programs as well as our special projects. Park Day School typically depends on your investments for 10-15% of our operating budget. Your voluntary support helps Park Day fulfill its most fundamental goal: providing a place where students think creatively, learn deeply, act compassionately and live fully.

 
 
Thank you!
 
Park Day School is a 501(c)3, and donations are tax deductible (as regulated by the IRS). Our tax identification number is 94-2368070.
 
Annual Giving
Every year, parents, alumni, grandparents, alumni families, staff and friends of Park Day School families all help us close “the gap” between tuition and the actual cost of a Park Day School education.
 
Specifically, the Annual Fund helps the school:
  • continue to attract and retain outstanding faculty
  • ensure small class sizes with individual attention
  • offer an enriched curriculum
  • maintain a diverse student body
  • maintain and improve our campus

If you would like to discuss ways that you can invest in Park Day School's future with an Annual Campaign, or any other contribution, please contact John Orbon, Director of Development and Communications to chat or set up time to meet.

Bequests and Planned Gifts
Recognizing Park Day School in estate planning benefits the school and can result in gift and estate tax savings to the individual. Some planned gifts provide lifetime income benefits to the donor. All bequests and planned gifts will help Park Day School provide a diverse group of students with a rich educational program for many years to come.

Appreciated Securities & Stocks
Gifts of appreciated securities can be a tax-wise way to give. Gifts of stock allow donors to claim the fair market value of appreciated securities at the time the gift is made. For instructions on how your broker can transfer your stock, contact the Development Office for details. 
 
Matching Gifts 
If you participate in your company's matching gift program, your gift to the school could be doubled or tripled. Obtain a matching gift form from your company, complete it, and return it to the Development Office.
 
Donating Your Vehicle
Every year, families who might otherwise trade in or junk a car, boat, RV or motorcycle donate it to Park Day School. The process is simple (with pick-up options), helps the school, and is deductible (like gifts of cash, stocks or other items of value). Please contact John Orbon for details.
 
Fundraising Events
Events can raise funds and fun! The Readathon is a day devoted to reading, while raising money pledged to students from neighbors, grandparents and friends. The Auction happens every year and is a fun and noncompetitive way to support our school. In addition to these major events, the year often includes public and school community events which raise fun and funds. Check the calendar for dates and details.
