Giving to Village
The generosity exhibited is evidence of our shared commitment to supporting an environment in which our children flourish and experience the joys of learning. The support of our community helps to make the dreams for our students a reality – it ensures that the legacy of Village School will continue for years to come.
The Annual Fund
As with most non-profit independent schools, Village School conducts and 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. Village relies on contributions to the Annual Fund from our parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, trustees, alumni and alumni parents. If you would like to make a gift to Village School, please contact the Director of Advancement, Alison McKee, by calling 310.459.8411 ext. 603.
Many corporations encourage philanthropy by matching employee donations. Matching gifts can double or triple the amount of your gift. To learn more about matching gifts, visit Ways to Give.
The Endowment Fund
The Village School Endowment Fund is a permanent fund comprised of monies held in investments with a long-term intent. The earnings support dynamic and innovative programs, promote excellence in teaching, enhance financial assistance and help to ensure the financial health and well being of the school.
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.
