Houndsgiving 2024

    • Happy Houndsgiving 2024

What is Houndsgiving?

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 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!
Stay tuned to your email and our YCDS Facebook page for updates from our mascot, Flash, and our Head of School Dr. Heine. 

York Country Day School Comprehensive Evolve Campaign

At York Country Day School, one tenet remains the same: to serve and care for our collective Greyhound family and beyond. The steadfast support remains a beacon of light for so many as we learn and lean into this journey of change. 

As we embark on our first-ever comprehensive campaign, we celebrate the opportunity to provide experiences for members of our community to ignite their intellectual, social, and civic passions. Our campaign focuses on the ability to create accessibility and affordability where a YCDS education is an opportunity for all students. 

Join us to ensure that all students and faculty have the resources and financial aid to thrive and pursue their passions in excellence.

Learn more about the Evolve Campaign here.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

The York Country Day School Annual Fund enhances the YCDS experience by providing vital annual support for our students in all aspects of their education.

This ensures that the school can sustain its rigorous curriculum, off-campus learning experiences, financial aid and much more.

Each donation is tax-deductible because of our 501(c)3 nonprofit status. Last year, every faculty and staff member donated to our school, which is a vote of confidence not many independent schools can boast.

We are committed to each student's success and our team effort in the realization of this ideal. Please support the future by making a gift. Thank you for your generosity!

Extraordinary by Design Capitol Campaign

There are many ways to join this historic campaign. Don't hesitate to reach out to Laura Burkey, Director of Development, at or 717.815.6713.
