Annual Giving

Ventura Charter School is a unique, public charter school that provides more than just an excellent education for our students.  VCS staff members, students, and families collaborate in the ongoing process of education. Our diverse and caring community integrates academics with creativity, thereby fostering independent thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders. We nurture the physical, emotional, intellectual, artistic, and social development of every child.

State funds only partially meet the financial needs of our school. Ventura Charter School has to raise additional funds to finance expenses not covered by state funding. Fieldtrips, specialized classroom supplies, extra curricular activities, and other operational costs that enhance the learning experience are financed through generous donations from our community. Annual Giving is Ventura Charter School’s growing community of donors who believe that whole-child education is vitally important to our future society. Donate today to make an instant difference in the lives of our students.

The Annual Giving Fund, the cornerstone of Ventura Charter School’s fundraising efforts, allows the community to invest in our students and provide new opportunities through our exceptional child-centered program.

Your monthly contribution will impact the educational experience of all VCS students, as well as the remarkable work of all VCS teachers. All gifts, large and small, fund innovative programs, urgent priorities, and unexpected opportunities that arise during the academic year.

Your contribution will help us meet our target and reach our goal.  Your generosity makes a difference to every child we serve.  We rely on the generous support of community-minded individuals and businesses to fulfill our mission. If you are able to give please do.  For more information on donating to our Annual Giving program please contact [email protected] or click the "Donate" button below to donate now.
