Make A Gift

Thank you for your interest in supporting The Primary Day School! We’d like to take a moment and share our gratitude. Since our beginning more than 75 years ago, we have been enriched with an outpouring of support from an enthusiastic school community who have continuously demonstrated their belief in our school and its mission. They have furthered that belief through contributions of time, talent, and resources, allowing the school to grow and flourish. Thank you for your commitment to our vision. As we look forward to the next 75 years, we hope you will continue to support The Primary Day School. We could not do it without you!

Ways To Give


The most common kind of gift, cash gifts provide direct and immediate support to help Primary Day meet school needs.


Pledges allow you to make incremental payments on your gift to the annual fund or capital campaign . All pledge payments are due at the end of each fiscal year, June 30, and are guided by the terms outlined as part of your pledge commitment.

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match contributions their employees make to Primary Day, thus significantly increasing the impact of your gift. Some companies contribute $2 or even $3 for every dollar an employee donates. Contact your human resources office to learn if your employer participates in a matching-gift program.


A gift of stock provides important support for the school while often resulting in significant tax advantages for the donor. Contact the Primary Day Advancement Office for more information.

Capital Campaign

It Starts Here is more than our campaign theme. The Campaign – energized by a 75-year retrospective of the families and staff who made Primary Day – is the springboard for the next 75 years. More than just a look back at Primary Day’s history, the retrospective has reinforced our collective understanding that our teachers will always be at the absolute center of the Primary Day experience. That’s why the IT STARTS HERE Campaign is dedicated to our teachers – our commitment to a strong, lasting financial foundation for compensating, developing, and retaining our teaching staff. The success of the Primary Day program depends on its extraordinary educators; their passion for their craft, commitment to their students and expertise and thought leadership in their fields.
