About

Join us as we come together to celebrate our Country Day pride and give back to support our school, faculty, and students!

#GivingBuzzday is an opportunity for alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends to join as one, over the span of 24 hours, to celebrate Detroit Country Day. It’s a time to show our collective support for all that is happening on our campuses every day—the phenomenal education our students are receiving, plus all of the other moments large and small that provide them with memories and connections that last a lifetime. 

Help us unlock $25,000 in support of The DCDS Annual Fund by hitting our goal of 225 donors!*

*All gifts and pledges made by Tuesday, November 28 and 11:59 p.m. PST will count toward #GivingBuzzday.

Your DCDS Annual Fund gift plays a critical role in supporting the School’s annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year. DCDS Annual Fund support impacts every aspect of a Country Day education, including the retention of and professional growth opportunities for our faculty, installation of new technology, enhancements to the fine and visual arts programs, resources for athletic teams, and financial aid for current students.
