Why We Give

We want every student who can benefit from a NOVA education to be able to attend.

When families and community members give a financial donation to our school, they affirm the value of a NOVA education and actively prioritize a diverse and inclusive school that has room for all students, regardless of ability to pay.

Making our school accessible to people of all backgrounds is one way our entire community expresses its commitment to connection, one of our core values. When different types of students attend our school, it broadens everyone’s experience and creates a healthier learning environment that centers diversity and shared experiences. 

We believe there’s no better way to enrich the lives of all the young people at NOVA than to create a vibrant scholarship fund that allows many different types of students to attend.

People from across our community give to NOVA. Here are some of their stories.

Support the NOVA Endowment

You can draw a direct line between an endowment gift to NOVA and brighter futures for young people in our community. 

We established the NOVA School Endowment in 2016 to promote the long-term sustainability of our program, in hopes that we will be able to serve highly capable students and their families for generations to come. 

The general endowment focuses on generating funds for financial aid for students, now and in the future. The structure of the endowment also allows individuals, families, and other donors to establish named endowments that target specific interests of the donor and the long-term needs of NOVA.

All endowment donations are managed by The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound

We are profoundly grateful to all endowment donors and excited about what this means for the longevity of our school and the readiness of future NOVA students.
