What is the Alumni Challenge?

With your support, we are introducing an endowed fund that will provide financial assistance for our children of CDS Alumni.

Introducing the Alumni Legacy Fund

We challenge our alumni to donate 1972 in celebration of our founding year throughout the month of November. Place the decimal where you wish - make it $19.72, $197.2 or even $1972. Make it a one-time gift or make it monthly, every dollar helps support our Alumni children.

Our Alumni Challenge will last from November 1 through November 30 and our goal is to achieve milestones in increments of $1972. We will announce our total raised at the Alumni Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 20th and hope that you will join us to celebrate the season and this exciting new initiative.

Follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter as we showcase donors to the Alumni Legacy Fund. When you meet the Challenge, post your own pictures! We will be announcing each $1972 milestone as it is achieved! 

It will take years to build the Alumni Legacy Fund, but we are extremely excited to dream about providing our first bursary to a deserving alumni child through the Fund.

Thank you for supporting the Alumni Legacy Fund today.
