Advancing the Mission

Since its founding, SCDS has fostered a culture of contribution. Many of our families find one of the best ways to meet one another and propel the mission of the school forward is to volunteer, attend community gatherings, and give back.

As a labor-intensive, idea-driven place, an amazing level of enrichment fuels our inquiry-based approach. An SCDS student's educational journey is directly enhanced by fundraising efforts, which increase need-based financial aid and expand programming and professional development opportunities. Funds are raised through an Annual Fund in the fall and an Auction or Shine community gathering in the spring. Additional channels for charitable giving—when the timing is right for your family—might include support of SCDS’s Infinity Fund Endowment or a legacy gift.

We invite you to stop by the Rose Boyle House with ideas, questions, or simply to enjoy a cup of coffee. Thank you for the direct difference you make in propelling problem solvers forward with your gifts of time, talent, and treasure!
