Giving

Philanthropy

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropy at FCDS enabling us to sustain excellence in teaching and providing immediate budgetary support for improvements and enhancements throughout the campus.
Throughout our history, parents, trustees, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends have given back through time and treasure, propelling us to be a leader in boys’ education.

At FCDS, giving is central to who we are as a school family. We know that an engaged community with shared core values forms the key to the boys’ academic and personal successes. As we continue to celebrate a strong tradition of giving—nearly 100% of our current families support FCDS each year—we ask every member of our community to participate and help to sustain Fairfield Country Day School’s future.

Gifts to FCDS benefit every student every day in tangible ways. Donors allow us to give our boys a voice; whether through public speaking, performing in a concert or play, cheering on their teammates, or building relationships over family style lunches. We invite you to visit a classroom, explore a science lab, or admire student artwork to see your gifts at work.

The Annual Fund, which runs from September 1 to June 30, is the most important source of revenue other than tuition, providing approximately 7% of our operating budget. Donors to the FCDS Fund give unrestricted support that propels FCDS forward as a leader in boys’ education and ensures that we are able to provide each boy with the incredible opportunities that are the hallmarks of the Fairfield Country Day School experience.
