Ways to Support Daycroft

At Daycroft, financial support, active volunteers and community involvement serve to strengthen our mission and our position as one of Ann Arbor's leading private schools. We are proud of the involved and philanthropic spirit of the Daycroft community, and we are deeply grateful to all who help make our school's vision a reality.

Financial Support

Annual Giving

The funds we raise through Daycroft’s Annual Giving campaign are critical to sustaining our exceptional educational experience. These funds help bridge the gap between tuition revenues and our actual cost of operations.

Gifts to the Annual Giving campaign come from Daycroft board members, staff, alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends. We ask Daycroft parents to give at whatever level they can afford. These donations are tax-deductible.

Endowment for Tuition Assistance

Daycroft’s Endowment for Tuition Assistance enables the school to help with the cost of tuition for families who demonstrate need. The fund is held and managed by The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, and gifts are made directly to the foundation.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are vital to Daycroft's success. Your contributions of time and talent will greatly enhance the Daycroft experience. Can you offer your efforts and expertise? There are many opportunities to do so:

  • Become part of the Daycroft Parent Guild.
  • Be a classroom volunteer.
  • Present to our students about your career, specialty, or culture.
  • Join and/or chair one of our school’s various committees.
  • Share your special skill or insight on a school project.
  • Serve on our Board of Trustees.
  • Support our annual fundraising auction by donating your time or valuable items.

Community Involvement

Business and corporations partner with Daycroft to create strong community ties. Our students have outreach and community service activities that enrich the learning experience.
