Annual Giving Fund

The Annual Giving Fund is the heart of our fundraising efforts. As with most private schools, Mount Vernon Academy does not rely upon any national or state governmental financial support. Tuition does not completely cover the cost of a student’s education, therefore dollars raised through the Annual Giving Fund are necessary to bridge the gap between tuition income and operating expenses. Every member of the Mount Vernon Academy community is encouraged to consider a tax-deductible donation for Annual Giving.
