The Annual Fund is essential to the success of Loudoun Country Day School. Tuition alone does not meet the true cost of an LCDS education, and like most independent schools, we rely on the collective generosity of our community to provide nearly 10% of our annual operating budget. Tax-deductible contributions from parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, alumni and friends are critical to our mission.
The Annual Fund is a reflection of our community’s investment in LCDS and enables us to recruit and retain passionate, nurturing educators, maintain small class sizes, and support the unique academic and co-curricular offerings that distinguish our program.
100% of our faculty and staff have contributed to the Annual Fund for the last two years, a true testament to their commitment to LCDS. Our goal is 100% participation from our families, and every gift directly impacts our students’ experience.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation or pledge to the Annual Fund today.
Ways to Give
Cash Gifts - Click here to go to our online giving page.
The school gratefully accepts cash gifts and contributions via VISA and MasterCard. A cash gift entitles the donor to an income tax deduction in the year of the gift.
Securities - Appreciated securities are perhaps the best form of assets to use in making a charitable gift. In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities, and, in the case of securities which have been held for more than 18 months, the avoidance of capital gains tax.
Matching Gifts - Matching Gift companies may double or triple your gift. Please check to see if your company has such a program. They will provide you with a form that you will send in with your gift.
