Welcome to Giving at Davidson Day

It’s because of our why... 

Many people - parents, grandparents, alumni and their parents, faculty and staff, corporations and small business, friends - choose to support the students of Davidson Day through philanthropic gifts. The impact of their generosity is seen in every aspect of our school.

But it’s their “why”, their reason for their giving, that is so fascinating. They recognize that Davidson Day’s sole focus is the accomplishment of our mission - providing each child with a superior academic education made complete through collaboration, creativity and character development. 

We don’t exist as an organization to make money. We exist to stoke the fire of learning in young minds, preparing them for a lifetime of curiosity and success. Therefore, our fundraising efforts are simply a by-product of our mission. Through philanthropic support, we are able to better provide the resources and opportunities for all our students that make a world-class education possible. 

We invite you to become involved with Davidson Day and learn more about the incredible things that happen here because of generous giving from our donors. Our hope is that you will be inspired to join them and help us fulfill our mission. Then we will be able to say together... 

The students of Davidson Day are our why!
