Annual Giving

KidsAylett Country Day School relies on yearly financial support to continue providing an education program of quality, substance, and choice while being fully cognizant of the individuality of each student. We are grateful for all contributions, no matter the amount, which allows us to continue our long established tradition of excellence in education.

“Why Give?”

This is the question most often asked; but the question should be “Why NOT give?”

Watching children grow and learn as they discover new ideas, concepts, and, adventures through their experiences in the academic classroom is an amazing thing.  Textbooks, technology, athletics, and an enthusiastic faculty open the world to Aylett Country Day School students from pre-school through middle school.

“Giving” is important to keeping Aylett Country Day School’s traditions of excellence in education strong for current and future students.  Your monetary gift directly supports the education of each student at Aylett Country Day School. 

As we elaborate on our original question… Why would you NOT want to make a gift supporting children as they grow in mind, body, and spirit? Your gift makes a difference. Your gift makes a child smile. Your gift is special. 

Please support Aylett Country Day School students as we continue to “prepare them for a lifetime of learning” with your tax deductible gift to the Annual Fund.   

Gifts can be mailed to the school at ACDS; P. O. Box 70; Millers Tavern, VA  23115 or through PayPal.  If you have questions about your gift or would like additional information, please call the school at 804-443-3214. 

Stock Gifts

A gift of stocks or bonds may provide you with even greater tax benefits than a cash gift of equal value. This is especially true for securities that have appreciated in value and could generate capital gains tax if sold.

Many donors make gifts of appreciated securities because they can avoid paying capital gains tax on them, and take a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities (if owned for at least one year). Discuss with your own tax adviser if gifting securities makes sense for your financial situation.

Transferring Stock

Please let us know if you are making a transfer and the security name so that it can be identified and matched to you once received. For more information on how to make a stock gift, please contact Whitey Lipscomb at Davenport & Company, LLC at (804) 780-2032, or
