Gifts to Alexandria Country Day School are received, processed and gratefully acknowledged by the staff of the Advancement Office. The Advancement Office serves to create friend-raising as well as fundraising opportunities to further the mission and goals of the school and to facilitate the involvement and support of alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of ACDS.

Pledges: ACDS encourages pledge commitments to any of our fundraising campaigns. Pledges to the ACDS Annual Fund must be paid by June 30th. The fiscal year runs from July 1-June 30.

Corporate Matching Gifts Program: Many companies match employee (or employee’s spouse) contributions to non-profit organizations such as ACDS. Please check with your employer’s human resources office to learn whether your company matches gifts. Matching gift forms should be sent along with your gift. Please contact the Director of Development for information on companies that have a matching gift program.

Planned Giving: ACDS greatly appreciates gifts made through donor’s estate plans, which often benefit their current financial health. Options such as life insurance, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder and lead trusts are available.

Memorial or Special Gifts: We welcome gifts in honor or memory of a special friend or an occasion.

Gifts of Stock: ACDS gratefully receives gifts of stock or appreciated securities. The benefit to ACDS is the same whether a donor gives cash or stock, but the tax benefit to the donor is usually greater with a gift of stock that has been held longer than 12 months. Please consult your legal or tax advisor for more information about the benefits of stock gifts.
