EVCA Foundation currently is involved with several fund raising activities during the school year. The success of these events requires active participation of the Staff, Students, and especially Parents. While these events are overall labor intensive, if done collectively, they are not overly burdensome to any single person. Acceptance to EVCA requires parents to provide individual volunteer hours to support the school and/or its functions. Working in any of these events meets the requirements of volunteer hours for the school.
Great Tradition Barbeque
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. Tickets to the Great Tradition BBQ are $50 each, and students are required to sell two tickets. The 2019 Great Tradition BBQ will be held in the Spring, date TBA. To volunteer, contact Joni at
The area that has shown the most promise, but the Foundation has not had the manpower to fully reap the benefits, is the writing of grants or funding requests. Various companies and organizations offer money for education activities. We are looking for self-starters, who are able to describe our school and how the awarded money will be used to benefit EVCA. Volunteers are needed to research funding organizations and then write grant requests. Please contact
