Tell your story and share your love of Capitol Hill Day School with prospective families. We are looking for parents to serve as tour guides, to host a coffee/reception, to help with an Early Childhood visit day, to call prospective parents and answer questions or represent Capitol Hill Day School at local admissions fairs.
Annual Giving is the largest fundraising activity at Capitol Hill Day School. Typically, 90-95% of current parents support our School with a gift to Annual Giving. Our Annual Giving Chairs lead a team of volunteers to reach out to parents asking for their participation. Previous fundraising experience is not necessary.
Our Community Service Committee organizes projects that take advantage of our School’s adult network to benefit our greater community and provide a positive model for our children. Parent participation is the key to the success of this Committee’s activities. The Community Service Committee meets about four times during the academic year. New members and their ideas are welcome! Please contact your homeroom parent with any questions.
Throughout the year, we rely on parents to lend a hand supporting specific events. We ask that every parent consider signing up for at least one activity. A sign-up email will be circulated through your homeroom parent in the fall.

Capitol Hill Day School relies on three major streams of fundraising: Annual Giving, our Spring Fundraiser, and the Capital Campaign. Throughout the year, Capitol Hill Day School volunteers reach out to parents, past parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, and others, asking for contributions to support the capital or programmatic needs of the School.

- Our Mission
Annual Giving is essential 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. Gifts to Annual Giving support programs like Financial Aid, which provides need-based financial assistance to over 25% of students at the School. After tuition, Annual Giving is our largest source of operational support. Contact Shannon Ryan at 202-386-9881 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s entirely up to you. Different families are 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 future.
