Why We Give

Your child is the most important reason to contribute to Annual Giving. Ventana School is committed to nurturing the whole child.  We value social-emotional learning and academic learning equally. In a safe, supportive environment, Ventana students collaborate and negotiate as they grapple with big ideas. They listen and lead, develop resilience and confidence in their capability, and emerge as life-long learners. Ventana students learn to contribute to the community in a respectful and caring manner, knowing that their contributions are always a value core of the learning experience.

Ventana teachers strive to provide the best program for our children, and dedicated parents volunteer time, talent and resources to support the school. Through our example, our children learn that in giving, we become whole.

How your gift supports Ventana

Like all independent schools - and even most local public schools - we rely on fundraising efforts to supplement operational expenses. Ventana depends on the annual giving campaign to fill a 6% operational expenses gap.  Ventana focuses its efforts each year on an Annual Giving Campaign in order to ensure that our amazing teachers and administrative team have the resources they need to continually improve our innovative Reggio preschool and elementary programming.

Operational expenditures allow us to:

  • Better provide competitive salaries and support teacher retention for our extraordinary teaching staff, especially given the rapidly-increasing cost of living in our area.
  • Fund new and exciting learning opportunities in our classrooms.
  • Keep our facilities safe and aesthetically pleasing for all members of our community.
  • Offer financial aid and staff tuition discounts
