Supporting the Mission of the MVGS Foundation

To support the foundation, you can direct your donation (using the links below) to different funds including the following:

  • The Vista Fund
  • The Lindsay Hayes Fund
  • The PTO Fund

Donations to the Vista Fund will support critical needs that are not covered by funding from our participating school divisions. Your donations will aid in providing the following for our expanding student population: electronic textbooks, summer enrichment programs, student research grants, robotics and other competitive teams (supplies and registration fees for competitions), lab supplies, transportation for field experiences, and maintenance of the school's mini buses and vans.

We have an economically diverse student body, and our Lindsay Hayes Memorial Fund is partially used to supplement the cost of dual enrollment for students whose families cannot afford to pay the fee. Your donations to this fund will help needy students receive college credits at a lower dual enrollment rate. We also provide a college visitation to VCU for students, and it is our hope to expand this program to include other colleges and universities for students, some of whom are unable to tour colleges with their families.

Donations to the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) help to fund the many efforts of the MVGS PTO to support our students. These include offsetting the cost of transportation to field trips, funding grants for student research project supplies, etc.

To make a donation, please send a check to:

  • Mountain Vista Governor's School Foundation
  • P.O. Box 882
  • Warrenton, VA 20188
