The Spring GalaOur community thrives because, together, we share a common goal: to provide and maintain an educational environment reflective of our core values and mission. Together, we have made a commitment to academic excellence, to the promotion and understanding of the diversity that makes our community strong, and to cultivate a constructive and responsible global citizenship.

The philanthropic support we provide AVS gives the school the resources necessary to provide more than just the basics, to be truly an extraordinary school. When you make a contribution of any size to AVS, you are joining a community of parents and friends who help ensure that we can provide each child with an extraordinary educational experience for our students.

A young, independent school like ours depends on the generous support of our current parents, grandparents, and friends to provide enhancements to the creative, innovative programs we offer our students. Community contributions also support our team of dedicated educators in the execution of these programs by providing classroom resources and professional development opportunities. At AVS, we value gifts of time & talent as much as financial support.

We hope you will consider making AVS a philanthropic priority for your family.

For questions about giving at AVS, please contact Ayesha Masud.
AVS Annual Fund contributions enable AVS to go above and beyond what is possible with the general operating budget to continually provide an exceptional academic experience for our students.

Annual Fund gifts are put to work immediately to fund the greatest needs and highest priorities of the current school year. The 2016 Annual Fund has closed for this year. 


This campaign is a multi-year fundraising effort to secure gifts and pledges the creation of the new middle school. This is a one-time, special investment. 


Generally held off campus in March or April, the AVS Spring Gala and Auction is the largest party and fundraiser coordinated by the Parent Group. All member s of the AVS community are invited to the Gala dinner and are encouraged to donate items for the live or silent auction. Each year the parent community also pulls together extra support to underwrite the attendance of our faculty and staff as a token of our appreciation for their dedication and hard work. All funds raised by the Spring Gala go directly to school projects that benefit students.


Many companies will match the value of charitable gifts made by their employees. When an employer matches all or part of a gift, the donor is recognized for the full amount of their own gift plus any resulting corporate match. Generally, your employer’s Human Resource department will know if your company participates in a matching program and, if so, will provide the necessary forms and instructions to initiate the match. Matching gifts are a great way to leverage Annual Fund donations.
