Culture of Philanthropy
Since 1970, there has been a long tradition of giving back to Providence Day School and it is the generosity of our past, present, and future donors that allows our school to thrive. PDS has been significantly strengthened by extraordinary support from its parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends.
We believe a Providence Day education will empower students to reach their highest personal potential and make a positive impact on their community and the world. This important work requires continued support. The PDS Board of Trustees has deemed three fundraising priorities important to the health and longevity of the school: the Annual Fund, the Endowment, and capital projects.
We are grateful to our supporters who have made PDS one of their philanthropic priorities. Every gift is an investment in our mission, our students and their teachers, and PDS is grateful for each one.
We invite you to contact the Office of Institutional Advancement or explore this site to learn more about how you can be a part of the culture of giving at Providence Day School.

Our most prized posession is our children, and we give to PD because of the amazing impact that it has on them each and every day. As a banker, I honestly believe that there is no greater return on any investment than what we see in Kyndal and Kailey. Chargers for Life!

We feel blessed every day that our children are growing up at Providence Day. Their experience here has been absolutely incredible - from academics to the performing arts to Extended Day's enrichment programs. There isn't a better investment we can make than toward this school. Go Chargers!

Jim and Jane Huddle
Both of our children were ‘lifers’ at Providence Day School and we are grateful to those who helped build and maintain the school. We have fond memories of the staff, the other students and our children’s experiences in the classroom, sports and the arts. We want to continue supporting the school for the benefit of those who are there today.

There's not a better investment to be made than to PDS. The biggest payoff is seeing our young graduates gain admission into the college of their choice and then excel in their careers. It's wonderful to hear about the many accomplishments of our PDS graduates.
We all benefit from the giving of those who came before us. As parents and grandparents, we feel that it is our obligation to carry that excellence forward through continued giving.

I make a yearly gift to Providence Day School because I would never have had the chance to attend Providence Day without alumni donations.
Colby Anderson, PDS Class of 2007
I have been part of the PD family since I was a 6th grader being challenged and inspired by amazing teachers. Even before I returned to PD to teach, I knew that giving back to future generations of Chargers was an important part of my role as an alumna. Now I am able to see first-hand how each gift impacts students and teachers daily!
