The Cardinal Fund

The Cardinal Fund, which serves as the Annual Fund for James River Day School, is designed to offset annual operating expenses. Gifts to the Cardinal Fund support our school’s resources and programs such as academics, athletics, technology, faculty salaries, classroom supplies and equipment, financial aid, and building upgrades. With tuition accounting for 80% of the school’s operating revenue, we need to bridge the gap between the cost of educating each child and the expenses not covered by tuition. The Cardinal Fund is crucial to the school’s operation and helps us continue the highest educational standards for our students.
 

We appreciate your support of James River's annual fund, the Cardinal Fund. Gifts and pledges are acknowledged with a confirmation message online and with an acknowledgement letter from our Development office. Whether it further enhances our classroom resources, technology or academic programs, every gift made to the school makes a difference in the lives of our students and faculty.
