|“Commitment is the heart of our Georgetown Day School community. It is with great pleasure that I thank all of the parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni parents, students and friends who demonstrate their commitment to GDS through their generous support of our School. Your generosity sets a standard for our children, exemplifying the GDS mission of preparing students for service to the greater community.”|

Supporting the Mission of the School
Since its founding in 1945, Georgetown Day School has grown from a seven-student experiment to a 1,050 student, nationally recognized school on two campuses in Northwest DC. This growth has been supported by our community of parents, alumni, faculty/staff, parents of alumni, and students through generous gifts of time and resources. All gifts to GDS—annual, special events, capital, or endowment—help us to strengthen our mission to honor each individual student and promote a lifelong love of learning.
Like all independent schools, GDS relies on philanthropic gifts, endowment income, and auxiliary programs in addition to tuition revenue to meet our annual operating expenses and the School’s long-term needs.
GDS is grateful for the contributions of all—current parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni parents, students, and friends of the School—who believe in our mission, support our ideals and recognize the value of a GDS education. Please remember, every gift is important.
