Valley Fund

The Opportunity to Support Yearly Needs of the School You Love

Valley Fund was created to give you the opportunity to support the yearly needs of the school you love. Donations to Valley Fund are unrestricted, which means they support our school’s mission by providing resources for students and faculty that are not covered by tuition alone. Each year, the generosity of Valley School parents, trustees, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends allows us to create exceptional opportunities and experiences for our students.

Valley Fund is the heart of our annual fundraising efforts. When you donate to Valley Fund, 100% of your gift goes to work for the current school year, supplying what our school needs most. Every gift of every size makes a difference. Valley School is grateful your support. 

In the 2021-2022 school year, Valley Fund helped to support the following initiatives:

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • What is Valley Fund?

    Gifts to Valley Fund provide unrestricted funds that have an immediate impact on this school year, supporting academics, the arts, athletics, technology, and faculty/staff professional development.
  • Why is annual giving so important?

    Making an annual gift every year is a statement to foundations, corporations, and other community partners that signal you believe in Valley School’s mission and the unique educational experience the school provides.
  • I already pay tuition, why am I being asked to contribute?

    Tuition alone does not cover the costs of the Valley School experience. Your gift to Valley Fund means that we do not have to compromise on the many wonderful opportunities we offer our students because of a lack of resources.
  • How much should I give?

    Our annual fund campaign has two goals; a financial goal and a participation goal. Each year, a number of generous leadership gifts ($1000+) help us reach our financial goal. Our hope is that every family in the community will help us reach the participation goal–with a gift of $25, $100, $500 or anywhere in between–every gift makes an impact.
