Independent school tuition simply doesn’t cover all the opportunities our students receive.
The bottom line is that your gift supports the people and programs that make Villa so special: talented teachers, small classes, current technology, exceptional offerings, and accommodations for different learning styles.
Your gift to VillaNOW supports:
- Teacher salaries and benefits
- Program enhancements and classroom materials
- Strategic goals and initiatives
- Faculty professional development
- Maintenance of our historic buildings and grounds
- Minimizing tuition increases
The majority of supporters contribute during October, November, and December.
A gift is your immediate donation to the school.
A pledge is your formal promise to pay a certain amount at a later date.
That’s easy. Pledge by December 31, 2016, but pay later. You’ll have until May 31, 2017 to fulfill your pledge.

Just check with your employer. Many organizations such as Microsoft, Gates Foundation, Google, Starbucks, and Boeing match.
Follow your employer’s matching gift instructions.
If tuition income doesn't cover expenses, why doesn't Villa Academy just raise tuition to cover costs?
We are committed to making a Villa education as affordable to as many families as possible while maintaining the small, increasingly diverse community that makes Villa such a special place.
A gift to VillaNOW is tax deductible whereas tuition is not.
Also, a VillaNOW gift may qualify for a matching gift from your employer, which may allow you to double or even triple your support. Tuition, of course, is not eligible for such matching gifts.
While we hope you make Villa a charitable priority, only you can decide on the amount that’s right for your family.
Our gifts range from $10.00 to $20,000. The average gift is just over $1,000 and Leadership Giving begins at $3,000.
Whatever your gift amount, we are grateful.
