Recognition

List of 4 items.

  • Annual Report

    All donations to The Country Day School are acknowledged in the Annual Report.

    Donors can remain anonymous if they wish. The Annual Report is published each year in the fall/winter and acknowledges donations based on a fiscal year ending June 30th.
  • Endowment

    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.
  • Eversley Circle

    The Eversley Circle is The Country Day School's recognition society to acknowledge and thank our donors for their outstanding support of $1000 or more.
    This special recognition circle is named in honour of the original one-room Eversley Schoolhouse, established in 1883, and now preserved as The Country Day School’s Junior School Library. Through the vision and sustaining support of hundreds of donors, our school has grown, expanded and flourished around Eversley. It is a fitting tribute to our donors that we honour them with a link to this historic legacy.

    If you would like further information, please feel free to contact us in the Office of Community Relations.
  • Physical Recognition Plaque or Naming

    In some circumstances, gifts to the School will result in the opportunity for a physical recognition plaque.

    Micro projects often allow a small acknowledgement plaque recognizing the gift. For larger, more transformational major gifts, The Country Day School may choose to offer the opportunity to name a space or area within the School. All physical recognition plaques or naming opportunities are confirmed with the donor and approved before installation.

    If you would like to discuss a donation, or wish more information about supporting CDS, please contact our Executive Director of Advancement, Brent Johnston at 905.833.1220 x269 or by email at brent.johnston@cds.on.ca.
