What is The da Vinci School Annual Fund?

As a non-profit school, the fund is a significant factor in balancing our operating budget.  Importantly, it is also a barometer others use to gauge the quality and strength of our school when determining their support. We count on parents, grandparents, alumnae families, faculty, staff and friends to help The da Vinci School by investing in our kids through the Annual Fund.   Donors to the Annual Fund may opt to make gifts to the general operating fund or may designate their gift to scholarships.  

 

Why should you give?

Here are just a few of the many reasons:

Changing the life of young students is a great return on investment.

Your gift - regardless of size - attracts gifts from others and makes a strong statement about our quality.

Da Vinci depends on annual giving support to supplement tuition dollars and the true cost to educating our students in a safe and environmentally friendly campus. 

All of our dedicated teachers and staff members have given to the fund. 

You want to give back to The da Vinci School as a “thank you” for your child’s strong educational foundation.

What could be a better cause to support with a charitable gift than our own children and children yet to come?

 

Where do Annual Fund contributions go?

Your investment directly benefits every student at da Vinci, fostering our unique educational environment.  A few examples include:

Providing our devoted faculty with resources they need to ensure continued academic excellence.

Along with the money raised by our Gala “Fund a Cause,” we have added security enhancements including shatter proof window film, front door security barriers, and security cameras.

Growing fund reserves needed for fiscal health.  In the past, these reserves helped make the Mary Ann and Stan Greene Campus land purchase possible.

Strengthening the financial aid program to ensure we attract students from diverse backgrounds.  Need for aid has increased over the past few years.

Upgrades to on-line parent tools including communication, registration and bill pay.

How much should I give?

Please base your decision on your own charitable interests and financial capacity. No gift is too small or too big. Your gift - regardless of size - attracts gifts from others and makes a strong statement about The da Vinci School. It's your participation in the effort that matters.

Why is percentage of participation important?

Just think of the message we send to external donors, prospective families, prospective schools, and many others when we all give to the annual fund.   Our percentage of giving is the most important measure used to evaluate community-wide support.  Corporations and foundations require loyalty from individuals within the school community before they make an institutional contribution. Participation shows commitment to a strong, high-quality school.   Your support motivates others.
