Giving to Village
The Annual Fund Campaign
As with most non-profit independent schools, Village School conducts an Annual Fund Campaign to help bridge the gap between tuition revenues and the actual cost of providing a first-rate private school education. Village depends upon this tradition of giving to enhance all of its programs and facilities, thus enriching the academic, creative and ethical development of each student. The funds also serve to supplement teacher resources, expand the use of technology and provide competitive compensation packages for the faculty.
Each year, Village School parents affirm their commitment to Village School with close to 100% participation in the Annual Fund Campaign. Village School is also very fortunate to have faculty and staff who not only educate, nurture and support our children, but who also choose to make an additional investment in our students by consistently contributing to the Annual Fund with 100% participation.
The generosity exhibited during the Annual Fund Campaign is evidence of our shared commitment to supporting an environment in which our children flourish and experience the joys of learning. Annual giving is a vital link between making our dreams for our students a reality – it ensures that the legacy of Village School will continue for years to come.

Making A Gift
Every contribution to Village School is vitally important to its continued growth and strength. Like those who helped build the school in the past, each donor will be an integral part of the school’s history and future. An investment in Village School will be of benefit to generations of children – a legacy of which we can all be proud. (Village School tax ID #95-4060392)
For income tax purposes, your cash gift is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Gifts may be made by cash, check or credit card.
You may achieve significant tax savings by making your gift via stocks or other capital assets. If you have stocks that have appreciated, your charitable deduction may be based on the full market value on the date of the transfer. If you have stocks that have decreased in value, you may be able to take a deductible loss when you sell the stocks and donate the proceeds.
If donors would like to donate appreciated securities to the school, via transfer of stock to the school's brokerage account, please contact Manuel Pardo, Director of Finance and Operations, for instructions.
Many corporations encourage philanthropy by matching employee donations. Matching gifts can double or triple the amount of your gift. Check with your company for more details.
Donors may wish to consider giving through such means as life insurance, bequests or charitable trusts. Planned giving may be a way to reduce estate and inheritance taxes. We encourage you to speak with your financial planner when considering any type of planned gift.
