THANK YOU for demonstrating how much you love Virginia Episcopal School.
In the 2018-19 school year, a record 2,701 donors gave $5.5 million to VES. You set a new bar for The Fund for Virginia Episcopal School at $1.73 million. You gave $740,000 to The VES Endowment & Trust, which reached $22.2 million for the first time ever. You also provided more than $3 million to support capital projects. As VES’ Director of Development, I am deeply grateful for your donations and humbled by your participation.
For the first time in VES’ history, 1,536 alumni—36%—made gifts, an increase of 106% from 747 total alumni donors just five years ago. VES owes a special debt of gratitude to the Class of 1977 for the example they set with record 77% participation and to the classes of 1985 and 1973, who tied with the most total donors.
Also for the first time in school history, 91% of VES parents made gifts, up from 58% total parent donors just five years ago. The Class of 2022 parents led the way setting a shining example with 100% participation.
Your support makes us believe that you are proud, as we are, of our school. Humbled by the sacred trust you have placed in us, all of us working at VES today promise to remain good stewards of your resources. We know that your generosity continues to make Virginia Episcopal School a better place each year.
