Your faithful giving is vital--more than ever before!

$150,000 Year-End Match Giving Opportunity


November 1, 2020


Dear Alumni and Friends,

RIGHT NOW generous donors have pledged to Match ALL unrestricted and worthy student gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $150,000 through year-end. Now is the time to give while your gift(s) will be doubled!! Your gift will help raise the $462,000 that absolutely must be raised to meet worthy student and financial aid commitments to current students this year.


For the 2020-2021 school year, SVA has experienced a significant increase in enrollment. This has created an increased need for worthy student tuition assistance, particularly for student families negatively impacted by COVID-19. To make it through this school year on solid financial footing SVA needs your prayers and your generous financial support.


Thank you for giving generously to help SVA keep the bold promise that "no qualified student is turned away from Shenandoah because of finances."


With Gratitude,
