  • Fundraising

    Families this year chose to raise money through business sponsors for a community event called STEAM Fest, or they could participate in a fun co-op event called STEAM-a-thon! 

    STEAM-a-thon was a day of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math for VBA students. Class STEM challenges provided families a way to raise money for the co-op without obtaining business sponsors. 

    Parents can select the option(s) that best fits their family:

    • Gathering personal donations from family and friends through STEAM-a-thon
    • Obtaining business sponsors for STEAM Fest
    • Making a one time payment of $500 by March 1
    • Making 2 payments of $250 by November 1 and March 1
    • Making 8 monthly payments of $62.50 from August to March

    VBA asks that each family volunteer at the VBA Fundraiser as well as meet the Fundraising goal totaling a $500 contribution.
