Capital Giving

Philanthropy is an essential part of our efforts at CDS, and we rely on the generosity of our community to further enhance our school and advance the priorities set by the school’s strategic plan. Philanthropic gifts launch CDS forward, allowing us to gain momentum in our initiatives and as the school of choice in the Tampa Bay area. The spirit of philanthropy that has sustained and improved our institution has united our community with a shared vision and collaborative energy towards continual improvement and innovation.

The beautiful facilities that make up the ECC and Bearss Avenue Campuses are the result of generous donors who believe in our school’s mission and future. Philanthropic contributions to capital initiatives are transformative in nature and provide increased opportunity for impactful teaching and learning experiences.

What is Capital Giving?

Major gifts for building projects for enhancement to the school and campus.

How does this impact CDS?

Through brick and mortar building projects. Due to the gifts normally being larger, payments can be paid over multiple years.

Why the request for Annual Giving and Capital Giving in the same year?

For the same reason you have to pay your mortgage while you are putting an addition on your house. The school must continue to meet its operating costs while making major improvements and investments for our future.

Michelle Robinson, Director of Advancement

To see our philanthropic growth over the years is a true testament to our motto, “Once A Patriot, Always a Patriot.”

Our community of supporters from  current parents, students, alumni,  alumni parents, faculty/staff,  grandparents, trustees and friends of CDS, are the reason we continue to  thrive and it is my honor and joy to be  a part of the Advancement Team  working with you to maintain our  legacy for centuries to come.
