There are so many ways to support Villa! Donations may be made by check to VVA, text the word DONATE to (501) 292-2651, or through PayPal using donate button here:
The Villa Victoria Academy Annual Fund is our yearly, ongoing fundraising campaign. The Annual Fund year runs from July 1 to June 30. These monies stay at Villa Victoria Academy and help to fund special projects at the Academy. We invite all alumnae, alum parents and friends of the school to consider making an annual contribution to this fund. You may designate your gift or make it in honor or in memory of a teacher, classmate, or Filippini Sister.
We have noticed in our recent recruitment efforts that there are a number of young women who are excellent candidates who would further our traditions and make a difference in the world; yet, they lack the financial resources to obtain a Villa education. Here is where we hope you can help. To ensure that Villa continues to have such a positive impact, we are respectfully asking you to Sponsor a Villa Girl. Many of the young women who have attended Villa have been able to do so through the generosity of our kind benefactors. Our Sponsor a Villa Girl program is a four (4) year commitment and has three different levels of sponsorship: $6,000.00 annually or $500.00 monthly, $3,000.00 annually or $250.00 per month, or $1,200.00 annually or $100.00 per month. All can be paid via check, credit card or debit card or can be set up for automatic payments via PayPal. Our Sponsor a Villa Girl program is tax deductible.
Double the impact of your gift by connecting with your employer’s philanthropic giving program. Many companies match up to 100% of gifts or volunteer hours donated by their employees. Please contact your HR department to see if your employer will match your gift to VVA! Past participating companies include Oracle, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Exxonmobil Corporation and Comcast.
An estate gift provides significant support to the future of Villa Victoria. You can provide for our school in your will or trust and the full value is deductible for federal estate tax purposes.
You may give a gift in memory or honor of classmates, parents, friends or the Religious Teachers Filippini. When a memorial or honorarium gift is made, Villa Victoria notifies the honoree’s family member(s). Unless otherwise stated, the gift is allocated to our annual fund.
IRA owners ages 70½ or older to directly transfer up to $100,000 per year, tax free, to charity. You must be 70½ and transfer funds directly to VVA from a traditional or Roth IRA. Please notify VVA of your plans and contact your IRA custodian to authorize your donation.
You may name Villa Victoria the beneficiary or co-beneficiary on an existing life insurance policy. In the event of your death, Villa Victoria receives the proceeds of the policy as a bequest, generating federal estate tax benefits. If you also make Villa Victoria the owner of the policy and relinquish all incidents of ownership, you can claim an income tax deduction for the cash surrender value.
Appreciated securities that you have held for more than twelve months can be gifted to Villa Victoria and you can benefit by claiming a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares and avoiding the capital gains tax that would have been due if the shares were sold. Gifts of stock are sold upon receipt. You will be credited for the value of the stock on the date the gift is made.
Gift an item from our wish list. Items are available at many price points!
