Annual Giving Campaign
The Annual Giving Campaign (AGC) is Almaden Country Day School’s #1 fundraising priority! The generosity of our community helps directly sustain the school's operating budget and supports every ACDS student's education.
The AGC is an integral part of ACDS's operating budget. Since tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of educating our students, we rely on contributions to the campaign for 5% of the school's income. Unlike tuition, gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign are tax-deductible.
