Annual Fund

Creating opportunities to collaborate, analyze, grow, discover, lead, excel, perform, explore, investigate, compete and achieve every day.

The Princeton Day School Annual Fund is the school’s top fundraising priority because it directly supports the school’s greatest assets – our students and teachers. The Annual Fund touches all aspects of the school and enables Princeton Day School to develop an innovative curriculum, attract and retain our exceptional teachers, maintain and improve our expansive campus and facilities, provide funds to enroll students who might otherwise not have been able to attend PDS and so much more. The School's success relies on the support of our entire community, including trustees, parents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and friends.

Lead the Way - Annual Fund Leadership Giving Societies

Princeton Day School relies on a strong tradition of leadership giving to support our students, faculty and programs. Leadership gifts of $2,500 or more make up 76% total giving. Gifts at the leadership level have a significant impact on our school.

The Semper Luceat Society - Every gift matters, every year

The Semper Luceats, our most loyal donors, have given to the Annual Fund for ten or more consecutive years and help make Princeton Day School an exceptional school. Semper Luceat was the Miss Fine’s School motto and means may it always shine. This Loyalty Society was created to honor Princeton Day School's most loyal alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends. These generous individuals understand that consecutive annual investments, no matter the size, transform lives.
