Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund supports virtually every aspect of the School, every day. Each year, alumni, current and former families, faculty, friends, corporations, foundations, administration and staff–and even the students themselves–make contributions to the Annual Fund to ensure the Fountain Valley experience remains world-class and unparalleled.

Gifts to the Annual Fund enable the School to immediately fund areas of greatest need. Fountain Valley School encourages donors to give from the heart and to support areas that mean the most to them.

Professional Development

Providing faculty with opportunities for meaningful professional development both retains excellent teachers and attracts more top talent. Gifts directed to professional development heighten the FVS experience not only for faculty but also for students, as faculty are energized by these learning opportunities and transfer their enthusiasm to students within the classroom.

Campus Enhancements

FVS's generous expanse of rolling Prairie, beautiful adobe buildings and stunning views of Pikes Peak—all under an impossibly blue sky—mean so much to many. Annual Fund gifts directed to campus enhancement support the preservation and conservation of this very special place while also funding improvements that ensure our facilities meet the needs of students today and in the future.
