Your Generosity and support Make It Possible FOr Us TO LIve Our Mission

Philanthropic support sustains the excellence of a Sun Valley Community School education. The generosity and commitment of every member of our community—parents and grandparents, alumni, past parents and friends—allow us to inspire our students to live our mission: to think critically, engage confidently, embrace challenges, and lead impactful, purposeful lives.

We are grateful for every donation we receive and recognize that we have not only been given a gift of financial support, but also a gift of trust. Together, we will ensure the continued fiscal health of this exceptional institution and enable our students to go "from here...anywhere."

Thank you for all that you do to make our institution the very best that it can be. To learn more about the many ways in which you can support Sun Valley Community School, please contact us.

Founded on Philanthropy

The saying "it takes a village" is one Sun Valley Community School takes to heart when it comes to educating children, but it has literally taken a village of generous supporters to ensure Community School's ability to fulfill its mission. From the school's formation in 1973 to today, Community School has relied on philanthropy for the additional funding needed to provide generations of Cutthroats with an exemplary education.
