The FWCD Fund

A Message from the FWCD Fund Chairs

Fort Worth Country Day’s deep-rooted tradition of giving demonstrates the loyalty, commitment and spirit of this community. Now, more than ever, we must fully embrace our dedication and drive to give.  

Your gift enriches the lives of every student and teacher on the campus. This year’s significant measures to mitigate risk on campus demonstrate how support of The FWCD Fund is so very vital given the challenges we have all faced in 2020 personally, professionally, and in the larger business community.

Contributions to The FWCD Fund can be designated toward any one of eight areas:

Academics • Arts • Athletics • Campus and Student Life Improvements • Faculty Support • Tuition Assistance • Technology • Greatest Need
Over $750,000 has been put forth in COVID-19 related safety enhancements to allow our students to return to learning, and offer each family the best opportunity to meet their circumstances and preferences. We are grateful to The FWCD Fund, which provided a significant portion of the necessary dollars to make this possible.

As past FWCD Fund Chairs, we are coming together to drive our support for one of the most critical aspects at School, The FWCD Fund. Standing united with commitment to The Fund is important not only for the 2020-21 school year but also for years to come. 

It is the power of collective giving - from your gift - which helps provide our Falcons with remarkable experiences at Fort Worth Country Day. United in our commitment to an education that empowers and excites, together we can make a difference with our support of the FWCD Fund. We are one community; we are one family; we are one campus; we are One FWCD.

The Moritz Challenge

Take the Moritz Challenge to help the School now more than ever!

In fall 2020, Leslie and John David Moritz, along with their daughters, Meg ’15 and Anna ’20, graciously stepped forward and challenged the FWCD community to raise an additional $250,000 for FWCD through increased and first-time gifts to The FWCD Fund. We are excited to announce that we met this challenge in early January 2021, and the Moritz family has offered an additional $100,000 for new and increased gifts made by June 30. 

Accept the Moritz Challenge:
  • It’s the perfect time to make your first gift to the School.
  • It’s a great way to give an additional amount over previous years gifts.
  • It’s a leadership opportunity to step up to the Keystone Council level.
