The Annual Fund is VAM’s annual giving program supported by generous VAM donors, parents, students, alumni, and friends. Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted in purpose and used in the areas of greatest opportunity. These gifts are referred to as “Annual” or “Current Use” as they are solicited annually and spent in its entirety during the same fiscal year in which they are received (July 1 – June 30).
Contributions to the Annual Fund enable VAM to:
- meet core and immediate needs
- respond quickly to exceptional opportunities that support innovations in teaching and learning
- provide funding to enhance performance and teaching facilities
A healthy Annual Fund is critical to the strength of VAM in continuing to be a strong educational asset for our students and a vital resource for our community.
