The Village Fund
Investing in The Village School
Thank you for entrusting us to prepare your child for college and life in an ever-changing world! We are committed to ensuring that the exceptional programming and activities that first attracted your family to The Village School remain strong. Independent Schools like TVS flourish because of philanthropy, and we are grateful to the parents, grandparents and loyal friends for their continued support.
What is The Village Fund?
The Village Fund, our school’s new approach to annual giving. Gifts made to Annual Family of Funds provide the essential support, beyond that of tuition dollars, to fulfill the highest aspirations for all of our students. Annual Family of Fund gifts allow members of the TVS community the opportunity to match their personal giving preferences to The Village School’s operating budget. We appreciate and honor your gifts and are committed to making these gifts visible and tangible throughout our campus. These six funds represent the most important areas to which families may direct their gifts:
- Athletics & Physical Education
- Fine & Performing Arts
- Academic Programs
- Technology & Innovation
- Professional Development
- Area of Greatest Need
Should directed contributions exceed a fund’s budgeted limit, the school’s administration reserves the option to direct the use of such funds to the area of greatest need.
How and when will I be asked?
The AFF Campaign is an 8-week initiative, from September 16 through November 1, 2019. Parents and TVS supporters will receive appeals via mail and email. Parents may also choose to make their gift online.
Questions regarding all gifts may be directed to Jane Badger, Director of Development, at email@example.com or 239-593-7686 x230.
