Why We Give

Your child is the most important reason to contribute to Annual Giving. Ventana School is committed to nurturing the whole child. 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 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 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. Currently, Ventana relies on fundraising to fill a $1,700 per student gap in its operational expenses.

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.

  • Continue offering our innovative Reggio program by providing our teachers with professional training consistent with the goals of our school.

  • Offer financial aid and staff tuition discounts
