Annual Fund: The Power of Our People
2015 Annual Fund Goals: $180,000 -- 390 donors
Please make your gift today to help us meet our goals!
The Power of Our People
Despite our rugged natural surroundings, or perhaps because of it, CVA has always been a tight-knit community full of warmth, caring and joy. Sugarloaf is surely spectacular and our new campus is incredible, but through the decades it is truly the people here who make it such a special place.
In the next few weeks, as part of our 2015 Annual Fund, we will be sharing small stories of the many people who are so committed to CVA via email and social media. We hope that as you read these, you will be inspired to help us meet our goals and will consider a gift to the CVA Annual Fund in honor of your CVA experience or to recognize that special coach, teacher, classmate, or friend who made a difference in your life.
We have until June 30th, 2015 to raise $45,061 -- every gift, regardless of size, gets us closer and is a true sign of your support. You can make your gift by visiting our secure donation page www.gocva.com/give, mailing a check or by calling Sarah Hinman at (207) 237-4471.
Thank you! We are truly STRONGER TOGETHER.
What is the Annual Fund?
The CVA Annual Fund provides critical funds each year that are an essential part of our operating budget. These funds are used to preserve and enhance the CVA experience, allowing CVA students to thrive in the classroom, dominate on the hill, and live out the Big Dog ethos of always rising to the challenge.
The Annual Fund is a separate fund, specifically for general operational support. Unlike events, special project funds, or the capital campaign which are used to fund a specific initiative, the Annual Fund impacts every CVA student.
At CVA, our fiscal year is from July 1 through June 30 of the following calendar year. Our Annual Fund runs on the same schedule.
Why an Annual Fund?
Half of CVA’s students receive financial aid, and tuition alone does not cover the cost of a CVA education. The Annual Fund covers the difference between the money raised by tuition and the full cost of attendance.
What Kinds of Things Does an Annual Fund Gift Buy?
In the past, the Annual Fund has helped put SMART Boards in classrooms, upgrade the trampolines in the AGC, buy slalom gates, paid for athletes to travel to competitions, and provided support for student activities.
