DaVinci Academy participates in and sponsors a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. In addition to helping fund our school’s ongoing needs, these fundraisers are also important in promoting and building our community. We encourage all families and friends to take advantage of these opportunities!
Below are a few of the ways you can participate!
Our first Color Run was such a success that we will be making it an annual event! Check out the fun we had.
- Visit smile.amazon.com. (Bookmark the site for easier access in the future.)
- Log in with your existing account. (You can create an account if you don’t have one.)
- Search for “Davinci Academy of Arts and Science” and select it as your charity.
Every time you make a purchase from smile.amazon.com, DaVinci Academy will receive a donation from eligible purchases to put toward our new playground!
Want to help us reach our goals to fund your students’ playground? Contact Melanie Persellin to be a parent volunteer coordinator by December 1, 2016. We need four volunteers for each grade to help coordinate and communicate classroom and school fundraising efforts for the Capital Campaign.
Give to The Max Day
Each November DaVinci Academy participates in Give to the Max Day, and each year we are amazed by and so grateful for the generous donations from our community! 2016 donations totaled over $7,200 and contributions will go towards our new playground facilities.

Easy Ways to Raise Funds for DaVinci Academy
Lands’ End has a “School Rewards Program” that provides DaVinci Academy the opportunity to benefit from any clothing purchased from their school catalog, from the school uniform section of their website, or from special kiosks in Lands’ End and Sears retail stores. The amount of the benefit ranges from 1% to 3% of total purchases by people who have identified our school as the benefit recipient. We encourage you to take a look at what Lands’ End has to offer, at www.landsend.com/schooluniforms. Merchandise includes everything from children’s uniform wear to men’s and women’s casual clothing. DaVinci Academy’s school identifying number under the Lands’ End program is 900142712. When making your purchase, please refer to this number. If you do not have it available at the time of your purchase, you can also find us under the full school name, DaVinci Academy of Arts and Science.
In addition, programs offered by General Mills, Kemp’s and others are administered by our active Parent and Teachers Organization (PTO). See details about current opportunities on the PTO’s website.
Interested in Creating a Fundraising Event for the School?
The DaVinci Academy School Development Committee monitors and/or organizes all fundraising events for the school. A “fundraising event” is defined as any activity that is conducted on behalf of DaVinci Academy of Arts and Science to raise funds and/or produce tangible items (e.g. books) and/or to enhance a school activity (e.g. poinsettias for the holiday music program). A Fundraising Event Application form must be submitted for School Development Committee review prior to the event. This process will be enforced for all fundraising events. Please note that the PTO may also conduct separate fundraising efforts.
