The EVCA Foundation is involved in several fundraising activities and events during the school year. Many of the events are held annually, but we do try to incorporate new opportunities as they arise. While some of these events are overall labor intensive, if done collectively, they are not overly burdensome to any single person. This is your place to find all of the EVCA Fundraising events, ask us how you can join us in our efforts to help our school grow!
2nd amendment gun raffle
Why does a school host a gun raffle? Well, first things first, the Estancia Valley Classical Academy does not host a gun raffle, the EVCA Foundation hosts a gun raffle. Secondly, an integral part of our mission is to “preserve our founding principles” and the EVCA Foundation believes this to be a part of those principle and is proud to hold a raffle dedicated to the 2nd Amendment. While this raffle may not make sense in a metropolis, it is a great fit in our rural community where hunting and ranching are steeped in the heritage and traditions of the Estancia Valley. The EVCA’s 2nd Amendment raffle was instituted in 2014 and is has been a highly successful fundraising event.

Great traditions bbq
The oldest and best known fundraising event is the Great Tradition BBQ, first held in 2011 to raise the initial application money for the school charter. This is a combination live auction, speaker, and dinner event that targets outside support for the school through like-minded, interested individuals that wish to contribute through auction/raffle items, financial donations or table sponsorships.
Walk. Run. roll.
The fundraiser was initially proposed by EVCA Founder Teresa Nunneley, to the EVCA Foundation in 2018. The inaugural (2018/19) event was a huge success, raising just over $41,000 and the subsequent year (2019/20) raised just under $48,000 which funded the construction of our playground.
