“We learn not for school but for LIFE”

                                                 … And The Annual Fund helps us do just that! 

At Powhatan, our education is centered around creating lifelong learners who use their knowledge, creativity, and skills to be confident students in an ever-changing world. This is built upon in the classroom as our 4th graders prepare for their state fair, on the crocker for conservation day, and in the Niemann Auditorium as the eighth graders prepare for their Shakespeare play and Chapel Talks.  

Our principles of Excellence, Civility, Integrity, Respect, and most certainly Service are extraordinarily vibrant because our faculty and staff, alumni, generous donors, and volunteers deeply value our Annual Fund and the possibilities it creates in furthering the education and opportunities we are able to provide. 

As a community rooted in learning for LIFE, we hope that we all are able to fully engage in the benefit and joy that is found in philanthropic giving. As we give generously, we are able to provide more for the students that are currently attending Powhatan and for those who will join us in years to come. 

We ensure that we are providing the highest level of education by supporting professional development, financial aid, faculty salaries, program resources, technology and more through our Annual Fund.

Please consider joining us as we set out to raise $250,000 in support of the 2021-2022 Powhatan School Annual Fund! 

This year, we have been gifted with a $50,000 challenge offering by anonymous donors. What does this mean? If we reach 90-100% participation within each constituent group (parents, trustees, associate trustee, and staff/faculty) and we raise a total of $225,000 in Annual Giving, we will receive an additional $50,000!! We are incredibly grateful for this anonymous and generous challenge gift and are determined to meet our goals and receive the additional funds to help support the school for both the present and the future. 

Will You Help Us Reach Our Goal?
