Annual Fund

There are two ways in which we raise money to fund scholarships, capital improvements, teacher enrichment and curriculum projects. They are The Annual Fund and Parents Association events. Current parents and our loyal alumni participate in both. There is no independent school in New York City where the tuition covers everything. The Annual Fund is an unrestricted fund that allows PCDS to recruit and retain the best early childhood educators, provide financial aid to deserving families, ensure the quality of our programs and sustain the operation and maintenance of our school building. The Annual Benefit, organized by our parents, is our largest fundraiser and brings together all the members of our community for one fabulous party and auction. The PA also organizes the Book Fair, Used Clothing & Toy Sales, the Saturday morning Pajama Breakfast that is hosted by our fathers, Mom’s and Dad’s Nights Out, all of which are both fundraising and friendraising events.

Park Children’s Day School is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax exempt. We are grateful for donations of any size. If you wish to donate, please press the button below. Gifts to the 2020-21 Annual Fund include contributions and company matches received before June 30, 2021.
