ANNUAL FUND DRIVE - HELP SUPPORT IVA

As a non-profit public school, Intellectual Virtues Academy receives state and local funding that covers most of our basic needs. Everything above that — everything that makes IVA so special — comes from our community fundraising. This year, we aim to raise $60,000 of our overall fundraising goal through our Annual Fund, which equates to almost 4% of our annual operating budget and will fund the full personalized educational experience at IVA that state funding alone will not cover.
