Make your donation or pledge by April 30, 2019 and your gift will be doubled!!

There's never been a better time to support Da Vinci Schools!! Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our industry and philanthropic partners (Chevron, Kinecta Federal Credit Union, Pipkin Charitable Foundation, and The John H. and Cynthia Lee Smet Foundation), all donations to the Da Vinci Schools Annual Fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $75,000.

This matching challenge is only available for a limited time. Make your donation or pledge by April 30, 2019 and your gift will be doubled!! All pledge payments must be received by June 30, 2019 to be eligible for the match.

State and federal dollars alone do not cover the full cost of a Da Vinci real-world education. On average, ADA (average daily attendance) revenue covers only about 90% of our operating budget. The Da Vinci Annual Fund is a yearly opportunity to help close this gap. Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted, which means they provide maximum flexibility to direct funds where the needs are greatest. These funds provide:

  • Hands-on curriculum for every Da Vinci student
  • A $1,000 materials budget for every Da Vinci teacher
  • Innovative educational technology
  • Additional opportunities that are not funded by the state of California

The Annual Fund is the fundraiser in which we ask every family to participate. We ask families and friends to consider a minimum gift of $365 per year (only $1 per day). All gifts $1-$365 will support the entire K-14 community. Contribution amounts over $365 may be directed to the school or program of your choice. Every gift makes a difference!

If you'd like to make a pledge, download our Pledge Form here. Pledge payments are due by June 30, 2019 to be eligible for the match. If you wish to apply your donation to more than one school or program, please make two or more donations.

With your support, we will continue to provide an exceptional college and career-ready education for the next generation of innovators and creative problem solvers!

Da Vinci Schools is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Tax ID 82-4350823. All donations are voluntary and tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We thank you!!
