Every donation, large or small, makes a difference in helping us educate and prepare young boys for success and a lifetime love of learning. If we want the best learning, we need the best teachers and resources — that’s costly — and not possible based solely on tuition. And that’s one place where the Annual Fund makes a difference.

Annual Fund Blitz

blitz /blits/ n. a sudden, energetic, and concerted effort, typically on a specific task.

For nearly 75 years, Presbyterian Day School has been focused on academic excellence, Christian character development, and BOYS! These ideals are supported by The Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund reaches into every corner of campus. It impacts every boy who competes at Field Day on the newly re-turfed football field, every teacher who participates in cutting-edge professional development opportunities, and every guest who feels welcome on our campus with new and improved signage.

Will you join the faculty, families, and friends that believe in the mission, values, and traditions of PDS? You can help us keep the Happygrams flowing!

All gifts are tax deductible. Grade level winners calculated after Fall Break.

Tuition dollars cover just under 90% of the true cost of educating a PDS boy.

Join Us: Make a Difference.

Today’s boys are tomorrow’s ground-breakers. One day, it will be up to them to make the world better. We’ll do our best to help them be prepared. That’s why it’s critical to build a foundation of problem-finding, mind-changing, idea-making, and good-doing that they can carry for their entire lives.
PDS is a special and unique school, and a PDS boy is far from ordinary. Your investment in the PDS Annual Fund helps the school remain at the forefront of education.
