  • CDS Dinner & Auction 2024: Donation Opportunities

    The Country Day School's Annual Dinner & Auction party will return on Friday, May 31, 2024! This is an evening you won't want to miss as we come together to celebrate Under the Big Top - otherwise known as our very own Cyclone Dome here on campus. The CDS Dinner & Auction is our most anticipated adult social event, as well as the largest fundraiser of the year. CDS families and friends have been coming together to celebrate and make this event a huge success since 1974, raising in excess of $6 million dollars since the beginning. You do not want to miss being a part of this evening!

    The success of the event every year is due to the generosity of our families and the CDS community and this is where you can help! We encourage everyone to consider making a donation on behalf of themselves or their family.

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
