WOW! The 2016-2017 school year is off to an amazing start! 


CDS hosted a Google Apps Summit for our teachers and the Tampa Bay education community… Dr. Michele Borba inspired families, faculty, and professionals from throughout the community with empathy training… CDS volleyball teams played their first ever home volleyball matches in the Hayes Family Gymnasium…  All of our elementary school, middle school, and high school students packed the gym for a thunderous Pep Rally led by our three cheerleading squads…  CDS varsity football team played their inaugural home game under the lights… Elementary and middle school students took action by bringing hope and help to flood victims in Louisiana… Golf, cross-country, and swim teams traveled the state to start their seasons… Promising artists, musicians, and actors are advancing their skills and talents… Teachers are creating a safe learning environment to make every student feel welcome… Dr. Derrick Gay is working with students and faculty to empower us to intentionally cultivate an inclusive school community… CDS educators and students are partnering with USF and Nielsen to help create entrepreneurial thinkers for a global society. 

THIS CAN ONLY HAPPEN WHEN WE ARE ONE COMMUNITY. Annual Giving at Carrollwood Day School is the lifeblood of our operational budget. Fantastic opportunities like those mentioned above cannot be funded by tuition only; they must rely on support from Annual Giving. The time is now to give to our 2016-2017 Annual Giving program; and with your help, we can once again surpass our financial goal and through our participation, send a statement to the Tampa community at large that we are 100% committed to our students and teachers. Your annual support helps keep new programs growing, unexpected costs from affecting budgets, and allows our teachers to have the resources to continue to provide what is very best for our kids.

We are asking each and every family to support CDS Annual Giving at the level they are capable of giving. There is strength in unified giving; every gift counts and gifts at all levels add up to create a huge impact. Below you will find the link to GIVE NOW. Your gift can be paid by credit card, stock, or check, or you may pledge support to the program and simply let us know when and how you will complete the gift. CDS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and each gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law, as determined by the IRS. 

Thank you for making annual giving to Carrollwood Day School a priority in your family's philanthropic plans.
