Support PCS students through the Dawson Fund for Financial Aid

Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are so fortunate to be able to donate during this challenging time, your generosity matters now more than ever. Preview

Double your impact with a generous challenge matching grant from the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation! 

We are very grateful to announce that our generous benefactor, the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, has stepped forward with a matching gift challenge to inspire others to support our current and prospective students during this critical time. The Virginia B.Toulmin Foundation will match every dollar contributed to the The Dr. James Dawson Fund for Financial Aid up to $50,000, beginning now until the challenge is met. 

More than 40% of our students require financial aid in order to attend PCS. Since 2015, the Dawson Fund has provided 25 financial aid awards, providing critical support for students who otherwise would have been unable to attend PCS. Through the Dawson Fund, you will support our current and future students and help enable PCS to continue to accept performing artists and other students displaying a passion for their chosen field who add vitality and diversity to our community, especially during these most difficult times.

This year, we were counting on the proceeds from this year's Spring Gala, which was sadly cancelled because of COVID-19, to help replenish the Dawson Fund, which is now depleted, after five years of providing nearly half a million dollars of funding for our students' educations. We had anticipated raising at least an additional $200,000 toward the Dawson Fund before the end of this academic year (ending on June 30, 2020), which is needed now more than ever. This $50,000 challenge grant and your support will help get us closer to that goal.


Professional Children’s School is an independent day school that provides a flexible, yet rigorous, college preparatory education for young people in the performing arts, competitive sports, and other activities that require time away from class.
