Donate to the Annual Fund



What makes NOVA an independent school?

  • NOVA operates without financial support from federal or state government agencies, and are self-governed by our Board of Trustees. Unlike public schools, which are funded by tax dollars, independent schools rely solely upon tuition revenues and philanthropic gifts to meet operating and capital expenses.

Why does NOVA need 100% participation from its community?

  • Annual giving is a key indicator to foundation and corporate donors that we have consistent support from those we serve, both past and present.
  • Participation in the annual fund is the most important way you can express your support for NOVA school. We ask the entire community; teachers, staff, students, parents, Board of Trustees and alumni to participate in the annual fund.

Does it matter when I give to the Annual Fund?

  • Yes. The goal is to have all Annual Fund pledge commitments in by December 15. Pledges can be divided into monthly gifts but must be paid by June 30.

How much?

  • We ask that you give what you can. Whether it’s a one-time gift or small monthly contribution. Every gift of any size is needed, important and counts!
  • Pledges range from $5 to $5,000. What matters most is your participation.
  • When every family gives our entire community benefits.

 Company Matching gifts

  • Many companies will match your gift, which will double your contribution. Find out if your employer has a matching gift program.
