The enrolment levy only applies to parents who first registered a child at CDS between 2001 and 2010.
There was no enrolment fee prior to 2001 and the fee became non-refundable after 2010. This levy is held in trust and would be eligible for refund when a family's last child leaves the School. Families were required to provide $3,000 for a single child and $5,000 for a family with more than one child. Many families choose to donate this amount rather than wait until the final child departs CDS. Donations of the enrolment levy have helped build our endowment in the past, and this year any donation will be directed to the Making Connections campaign. Currently, CDS has approximately $1 million in levies being held.
Fast and easy, families have already paid this fee to CDS to hold in trust
Immediate tax benefit in the year that the fee is donated (A $3,000 donation can provide a $1346.24 tax benefit and a $5000 gift can provide a $2273.44 benefit)
Potential to make a huge impact on our campaign if all families donate this amount ($1 million)
