Donate now

Every year, our diverse and dedicated community bands together to help Capital City provide an excellent education to every student by donating to the Family & Friends Giving Fund (previously Family Campaign). This annual fundraiser helps the school close the financial gap from what the city provides and what our education costs. Donations support program essentials such as:

Low teacher to student ratio

Low student to teacher ratio for personalized instruction

Assateague fieldwork

Fieldwork and adventure trips that extend classroom learning

After school track and field

Free after-school programs for middle and high school students

Lower School student with art project

Comprehensive, integrated arts program for all students

Help us reach our goal of 100% participation from all families. You can give to the Family & Friends Giving Fund at any time during the school year!
