An endowment is a fund that holds investments in perpetuity as a source of income. It provides an inspirational opportunity for our families to support an area of interest in the School, forever.
Families can support areas within the School by donating to an existing fund, many named in honour of donors and former members of faculty and staff. Endowment funds provide meaningful support for the School and its community by: diversifying the student population; adding a humanizing touch by extending support to families who have had their circumstances change mid-way through the educational experience;and by helping to fund programs that would otherwise be unaffordable such as hosting visiting experts in academic, artistic and athletic disciplines.
CDS currently has funds that support scholarships and bursaries, athletics, music, staff development and training, and beautification and green initiatives.
