What is Annual Giving?


We rely on the generosity of every member of the MVS community to give to the Annual Fund, which provides the competitive edge that enables us to create an educational experience unlike any other school in the Dayton region.

What does Annual Giving support?

The MVS Annual Fund supports the school in multiple ways, and our students are the direct beneficiaries. Our dedicated and nurturing faculty, superb academic programs, libraries, classroom technology, athletics, fine and performing arts, and scholarship program are all supported by your gift. In short, everywhere you look you will see the benefits!

Are gifts tax deductible?

Yes, all gifts are tax-deductible. The Miami Valley School is a recognized 501c3 educational institution.

Do matching gifts count for recognition purposes?

Yes. The employer’s matching gift will be combined with the parent’s gift to determine the giving level at which the parents will receive recognition.

Why is participation so important?

Every gift counts. A high participation indicates strong parental commitment to the mission and vision of our school, which is an important consideration when the school seeks funding from outside foundations and corporations.

How can I make a gift?

Donors can charge their gift to a credit card, pay by check or we accept gifts of securities, mutual funds, etc. Annual giving gifts may be paid in installments. Contact the Development Office at (937) 434-4444 for more details.
