VillaNOW provides flexible, unrestricted income for programs that are critical to a Villa education and allow the school to meet the highest needs in the current year. Top-tier faculty and staff, challenging academics, premier fine arts, athletic and co-curricular programs, and a diverse student body touch the lives of each student and are made possible through your gifts to VillaNOW.
Raising tuition to the actual cost of educating each student would place too large a burden on many families, making it impossible for their children to attend Villa Academy. By containing tuition costs through your support of VillaNOW, Villa is able to fulfill its commitment to attracting talented as well as diverse students. Additionally, donations to Villa are 100% tax deductible, and many donations qualify for additional contributions from corporate Matching Gift Programs.
Villa is an economically diverse community and each family is asked to thoughtfully consider a gift that will be personally meaningful. While “the gap” is a starting point for consideration of gift size, not all families are able to contribute the full amount, and some families can give more. It is a personal decision; each family is requested to participate to the best of their ability.
School-wide participation in VillaNOW is a testament to the community’s strong commitment to the school's mission and to the goals of a Villa education. Achieving 100% participation builds community, identifies solidarity, and often inspires significant additional gifts. All gifts—large and small—make a collective impact which benefits each and every student.
Contributions of $3,000 or more are honored at the Villa Benefactors Dinner in late spring.
Matching gifts are a great way to leverage VillaNOW donations. Many corporations match gifts to charitable institutions such as Villa Academy, thereby doubling or tripling a gift to the school. In annual publications, donors are recognized in the giving society commensurate with the total gift amount.
Everyone in the school community—trustees, faculty, staff, current parents, past parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends—is asked to participate in VillaNOW. In recent years, 100% of trustees, faculty and staff have pledged support to the campaign.
