On Friday, February 2, community members near and far join together in support of the Home of the Greyhounds. Alumni, Parents, Grandparents, Students Faculty and Staff, Friends, and others are invited to support our community.
What is Houndsgiving?
Houndsgiving was created in 2017 as a 24-hour day of giving. As a nonprofit, York Country Day School relies upon donations to our Annual Fund to support our program. Funds are used for field trips, materials, supplies, facilities, salaries, financial aid, and much more. In our sixth year, Houndsgiving has raised more than $200,000 in total for our school.
How do I donate?
There are several ways to donate to Houndsgiving. The easiest way is to use our secure online giving form at giving.ycds.org
. You may give today (through the weekend) and it will "count" toward Houndsgiving. You may also send a check to YCDS, 1000 Indian Rock Dam Road, York, PA 17403, or you may drop off cash/check to our front desk. Parents, your child may also bring in a donation Friday. Each class visits Houndsgiving Headquarters to donate and pick up fun swag.
What amount should I donate?
All donations must be $1 or higher. (Please no coins.) To receive an exclusive Houndsgiving 2024 T-shirt, donations start at $25. We also have other swag for all donors. Your generosity is sincerely appreciated.
What will Houndsgiving (Friday) look like?
Music will be playing at Houndsgiving Headquarters inside the school as students arrive and depart. We will even have the rainbow balloon arch, yummy goodies, swag and more set up. Your student may drop-off his/her donation on the way to class or wait until the grade visits during the day. Either way, there is plenty of swag and fun for everyone! While Friday is a regular class day, the campus is definitely a bit extra spirited on Houndsgiving!
