What is The da Vinci School Annual Fund?

For a non-profit school, the Annual Fund is a significant factor in balancing our operating budget.  Importantly, it is also a barometer that 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 our Annual Fund.

 

Why should you give?

Here are just a few of the main reasons:

  • Changing the lives of young students is a great return on investment.
  • Your gift attracts gifts from others and makes a strong statement about our community’s support.  Da Vinci depends on annual giving to supplement tuition dollars and the true cost of educating our students in a safe and environmentally friendly campus.
  • Our dedicated staff members give to the annual fund.
  • Supporting The da Vinci School shows gratitude for your child’s strong educational foundation.
  • What could be a better cause to support with a charitable gift than your 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.
  • Developing and equipping additional outdoor activity areas.
  • Growing fund reserves needed for fiscal health.  In the past, these reserves helped make the Mary Ann and Stan Greene Campus land purchase possible, as well as the purchase of the JCPC property to our south.
  • Strengthening the financial aid program to ensure we attract students from diverse backgrounds.  Need for aid has increased over the past few years.
  • Upgrading technology for security purposes, student learning and staff needs.
  • Improving on-line parent tools including communication, registration and bill pay.
  • Adding UV lights in HVAC duct work, enhanced air filtration, electrostatic sprayers and safe disinfectant.
  • Hiring additional classroom support staff and part-time nurses.

How much should I give?

Please base your decision on your own charitable interests and financial capacity.  For the 2020-2021 school year, we are unable to hold a Gala.  Please consider making a contribution that encompasses both Annual Fund and Gala investment at a level which works for your family.

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.  Participation shows commitment to a strong, high-quality school.  Your support motivates others.
