CVMS Students

As an independent school, CVMS does not receive public support. Tuition does pay for the day-to-day operating costs. However, tuition alone cannot cover everything that makes an education at CVMS unique.

Annual Campaign

The month of October hosts our Annual Campaign. This is the only fundraiser CVMS will hold this school year. Our 2012 Annual Campaign Goal is $15,000.
We feel that a simple approach to fundraising best suits the needs of our families. The Annual Campaign is the only time we ask our families for a direct donation during the school year.
The benefits of an Annual Campaign:
  • CVMS receives 100% of your donation.
  • You are not asked to sell anything.
  • No need to attend multiple fundraising events.
  • Fits in to everyone’s busy schedules.
  • Funds are available for use this school year.
  • Money is used across school programs.
  • Supports focused planning for use of funds.
  • Strengthens the bonds of our school community.
  • Gifts are tax deductible
Every family benefits from a successful Annual Campaign. Gifts of all sizes are valued and important. The
amount of your contribution will remain private. Our goal is to have 100% participation from our enrolled families.
Would you like to see your gift do twice as much for CVMS? Many local employers have Matching Gift
programs. Obtaining a matching gift can double your contribution. Taking a few minutes to complete the following steps is one of the most important ways you can support the Campaign.
  • Contact your company’s Human Resources Department or Plan Administrator.
  • They will provide you with a match form and give you instructions on completing
    the process.
  • Send the completed form to CVMS (some companies have online submissions.)
We’ll do the rest!
