Annual Fund

All gifts to the VES Annual Fund and other operational needs make a difference to the school's ability to fulfill its historic mission by providing budget-strengthening resources. Our program goals are to (1) invite broad-based participation - gifts of any size from large numbers of people - and (2) to expand a core group of leading Annual Fund donors as members of The 1916 Society.

Financial support from individual donors has always been vital to VES. With your generous and enthusiastic participation, VES remains a place where our students are encouraged to achieve their personal best.

"VES is a small institution with great needs. So the decision to support my school, a place where the gift will have the greatest impact, is very rewarding."

John Morgan Darden, III ‘57
