Annual Giving

Annual Giving is absolutely vital to the health of Capitol Hill Day School. Gifts each year from parents, grandparents, past parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and others help make all that we do here possible.

What does Annual Giving Support?
Just about everything—teacher salaries and professional development. Books and arts supplies. Field Education experiences that enrich learning in immeasurable ways. Financial aid to help families that need it. The list goes on. After tuition, Annual Giving is our largest source of operating support .

Why should you give?
Because at Capitol Hill Day School and at just about every other quality school across the country, tuition dollars alone don’t cover the full cost of delivering a great education. Annual Giving helps make up the difference.

How much should you give?
That’s entirely up to you. One of the School’s strengths is its diversity, and that means different families will be able to give at different levels. And while what you give is certainly important, it’s just as important that you give. Your participation in Annual Giving sends a powerful message—to prospective families, to the education community, to anyone paying attention—signaling your deep commitment to this great School’s strength and prosperity.
