  • Sustaining Gifts

    Sustaining gifts offer a great deal of financial stability to Chatham Day School and are the easiest and most efficient way to support our work.

    One gift option is to pledge your support now and fulfill it at a later date prior to the end of the fiscal year. A reminder notice is sent from the Office of Advancement. Your pledge allows for CDS to plan for the school year with the knowledge that we can count on your support.

    Another option is to set up a recurring gift which enables you to make a larger impact over time. A recurring gift is a series of installments on a charge card, the amount and duration of which are determined by and can be changed at any time by you. It’s easy to set up your recurring gift monthly or quarterly to maximize your year-end giving.
