Shoot for
the Stars

Volunteering and fundraising are responsibilities we all share, and as the CPVA Foundation we do our best to be mindful of the demands on your time and resources by limiting the number of requests we make on behalf of the program – this appeal is the only time you’ll be asked to contribute directly.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 by December 7 in order to grant the majority of the items on the 2018-2019 wish list put together by the staff – each would be of great benefit to the students. These items and experiences are beyond the scope of the school’s budget – with about 500 students in the PVA program, though, a contribution from each of us can make them a reality.


The teachers and staff truly make the PVA program outstanding – and they do so with sometimes limited resources. Working together, we can help remove a few of those limitations – we invite you to be a part of this year’s “Shoot for the Stars” campaign!
