SUPPORTING VIMSIA from A to Z
For over 50 years VIMSIA has supported thousands of children in constructing themselves into the unique individuals they are meant to become. Under the guidance of exceptional teachers, in learning environments designed to inspire, children joyfully prepare themselves for a lifetime of self-discovery and fulfillment. Your gift strengthens VIMSIA in providing awe-inspiring and transformative education. Please support the children in their work with a gift to the VIMSIA Annual Fund.
We have many fantastic events throughout the school year and we need you to make them even better. Join us at our Wine Tasting, Las Vegas Night, Taste the Nations, and other VIMSIA events to experience a variety of gourmet foods, enjoy live music and converse with island friends. Event proceeds support VIMSIA students! Click here to see all the events you can attend.
Donate auction items to our Las Vegas Night Event. This is the school's largest fundraising event and it depends on YOU! We receive donations from merchants locally and around the world. This is a great way to support the school and promote your business. Do you have something you want to donate? Please click here so that we can contact you.
VIMSIA takes all your Box Tops for Education clippings and the funds go to support the Annual Fund. Each clipping earns 10 cents towards our school. Drop off your Box Tops in the Front Office any time throughout the school year. For a list of participating products visit http://www.boxtops4education.com/participating-products.
Have you made a gift to the Annual Fund? Over 20% of our yearly financial assistance comes from your generous donations.
Giving Tuesday is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This day, following the commercialized shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is dedicated to giving back to the community. Here at VIMSIA we have a special Giving Tuesday donation day where we aim to receive a percentage of donations. To learn more about what Giving Tuesday is, click here.
