Annual Giving Campaign–Double Your Donation Now Through 3/31

Time is running out to double your donation! Thanks to a generous matching challenge by Chevron, Belkin, Northrop and Kinecta, every donation and pledge made to the Annual Giving Campaign by March 31 will be DOUBLED, up to $50,000.

We are so grateful to those families who have already donated, yet our Da Vinci Science giving participation stands at only 12% to date. We are seeking 100% family participation. Your contribution provides immediate support to Da Vinci’s top priorities. This year we have a $500 per student gap between what the state provides and what it really costs to deliver an outstanding Da Vinci education.

Every gift matters! Make a tax-deductible gift or pledge today by using this link.
