Philanthropy plays a significant role at La Jolla Country Day School. Since our founding in 1926, we have benefited greatly from the support of parents, alumni, grandparents, board of trustees, faculty, staff and friends who continue to invest in excellence and lifelong learning. Philanthropy is the distinguishing factor between a good school and an exceptional school. LJCDS is grateful for our community and invites you to learn more about ways to become part of this tradition of giving.
LJCDS is special because of its people and is grateful for the dedicated community of donors who continue to make an impact.
Greatest need dollars support virtually every area of LJCDS and every member of our community is encouraged to contribute a meaningful gift.
LJCDS’s signature fundraising gala raises money for financial assistance, professional development, the endowment and Parents Association activities. The annual event takes place in March and includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auction, dinner, raise-a-paddle and musical entertainment.
Gifts to support tuition assistance allows LJCDS to enroll highly motivated and talented students of strong character, regardless of their ability to pay full tuition, creating a diverse and enriching learning environment.
There are numerous ways to support LJCDS, and with such a myriad of student programs, there is a funding need that needs you.
