Support VVS

How to Give

Your gift helps ensure Verde Valley School remains a place where people from all over the world can come to live, study, and work together in hopes of making the world a better place.  It ensures that the arts, music, and theater are shared and celebrated. And it assures that unique programs like Field Trips and Project Period continue for future VVS generations.

Whether you’re considering a gift to the Annual Fund, a donation to our Global Goals Malawi Program, an item from our wish list, or an hour of your time, we appreciate that you are making Verde Valley School a financial priority.

We are happy to share that 100% of our board of trustees, faculty and staff contribute donations and/or in-kind services to Verde Valley School.


DOES YOUR COMPANY MATCH EMPLOYEES’  CHARITABLE GIFTS?

Naming Verde Valley School as a recipient of your matching gift program can double or even triple the size of your donation, regardless of the method by which you choose to give. Please check with your human resources department to obtain the appropriate paperwork and notify the VVS Advancement Office at the time of making your gift.

  • Native American Scholarship Fund

    Donate Now to the Native American Scholarship Fund

    Since its inception, VVS has welcomed and partnered with the local nations. In fact, the Hopi and Navajo nations helped to build our campus facilities. Our principle of World Citizenship and Cultural Understanding evolved from our belief that students from around the world and “down the street” will develop together a sense of acceptance, a value for different cultures and a deep commitment that each of our students bring their backgrounds and experiences to the school community and in turn, we become an educational arena where we all learn from one another and share in that knowledge. Jackson Browne helped to create the Native American Scholarship Fund with several annual music concerts on the VVS campus, with performances from artists like Neil Young, James Brown, Bonnie Raitt, the Indigo Girls, Crosby, Stills, and Nash and many others. All proceeds added to the fund in an ongoing commitment to bring awareness and support for native students.
    The Native American Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to any native student with a financial need. In addition, the Native American Scholarship Fund provides funds for native programs, workshops, and guest speakers/teachers to share their cultures, heritage, and experiences with the VVS community members.
