Through broad-based participation of the Chiaravalle community, the Annual Fund supports the school’s most immediate needs each year.
Every gift matters.
Your donation supports:
Hiring and retaining exceptional faculty
- Maintaining a high teacher-to-student ratio
- Investing in a more inclusive community

We ask every family to make a gift at a meaningful level to them. Last year, we were delighted to reach nearly 80% overall family participation and hope to build to 100% this year. Your contribution encourages others to give and help demonstrate the power of collective action in our community.

How does Chiaravalle fund each child’s education?
Each year, our Board of Trustees approves a budget planned to achieve Chiaravalle’s mission. Although tuition is the largest source of revenue, it does not cover the cost of each child’s education. To reach 100% of our budgeted dollars, we rely on charitable donations from parents, alumni families, grandparents, and friends. Many current and past families identify Chiaravalle as one of their top philanthropic priorities. Their contributions make an immediate and lasting impact on our community. Like other independent schools, Chiaravalle is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and gifts are tax-deductible. This year, the Annual Fund will be our primary appeal for philanthropic support.
How much should I give to the Annual Fund?
Gifts of all sizes make a difference and support ALL of our students. While a family’s giving ability can change from year to year, we hope that you will consider a gift that is meaningful for your family. Past Annual Fund gifts have ranged from $10 to $10,000+. Your support will send a powerful message as we strive for 100% participation from current families.
Why commit in the fall
Annual Fund revenue supports the current year‘s operating budget. It‘s helpful for the school to know in the fall that we will meet our goal and to plan responsibly for the remainder of the year. We realize that families may choose to make gifts at different times throughout the school year. However, we ask that you consider making your gift or pledge to the Annual Fund each fall. Pledge payments should be fulfilled by May 1.
Can my company make a matching gift?
Yes. A corporate matching gift is an easy way to increase the impact of a personal contribution. Taking advantage of a company’s matching gift program could potentially double or triple your donation. Check with your Human Resources Department or contact our Development Office to determine whether your company will match your gift.
