Capital & Endowment Giving

While Annual Fund contributions help to cover the school’s yearly operating expenses, Cottonwood Day School relies on leadership gifts to capital initiatives and the endowment in order to fund larger needs.

Capital gifts help to fund building and technology projects. For example, such contributions can help to renovate classrooms, as well as install age appropriate playground structures. Gifts to the endowment help to secure the school’s long-term financial stability—and to fund current priorities through ongoing interest generated by the endowment.

By establishing an endowed fund or contributing to an existing fund, you can support Cottonwood Day School and the students in several ways:

  • A scholarship fund helps to make a Cottonwood Day School education possible for deserving students.

  • An endowed fund can be designated to support a designated department, technology, athletics,  library, or faculty enrichment project.

You can choose to name a new fund in honor or in memory of a beloved family member or teacher, creating an enduring legacy.

Cottonwood Day School is raising funds for several urgent priorities:
