Capital Giving

In addition to our Annual Fund program, which provides immediate support for the school’s fiscal year, capital gifts provide long-term support of the endowment, new and renovated facilities and a range of academic programs.

Throughout our long history, we have relied on members of our community to partner with us to support the needs and priorities of Princeton Day School. Capital giving allows Princeton Day School to provide an outstanding education for our students of today and tomorrow.

Please contact Kathy Schulte, Director of Advancement, at kschulte@pds.org of (609) 924-6700 ext. 1255 for questions and additional information.

Capital Gifts at Work

Head of School Paul J. Stellato officially broke ground for the School's new athletic and community center on this brilliantly sunny Blue & White Day celebration, culminating several years of strategic planning and highly successful capital campaign efforts. While some pre-construction activity has already begun, the project starts in earnest on June 10 with a planned completion goal of Fall 2020.

In opening remarks before lifting a ceremonial shovel with Board Chair Rebecca Bushnell '70 and three representative students from the Lower, Middle and Upper School, Mr. Stellato explained, "There are too many people to call out and thank for their years of hard work in bringing this project to life, but I am thrilled that so many of them can be here today. This center will be a spectacular space for each of you and for every member of our community. It is especially fitting that we are breaking ground on this project on Blue and White Day, because there is no day during the year that is more representative of Princeton Day School than this joint celebration of our entire PreK-Grade 12 community."

An extraordinary gift of $5 million, the second largest in Princeton Day School's history, allows the School to turn its attention to a long-anticipated and critically needed facility: a 30,000 square foot, LEED-certified Athletic Center. The new Center will adjoin the Lisa McGraw '44 Skating Rink and contain a field house with two indoor courts for multi-sport use, four international squash courts with a spectator viewing area, and a common gathering space. The field house, squash courts and community gathering spaces will be joined within the Athletic Center, providing a new and expanded space on campus for students to meet, compete, study and socialize. "We are confident at the prospect of breaking ground in May 2019, knowing the many ways this essential campus facility will allow our entire community to thrive," Head of School Paul Stellato stated.
