This campaign ended on February 20, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Van Ness Elementary PTO by clicking here!

At GiveCampus, our team is united by our mission to advance the quality, the affordability, and the accessibility of education. This mission drives our daily work—and we know it’s what drives you, too. 

That’s why this year, we’re asking our partner community to join us in living our mission by supporting Van Ness Elementary School with #GCGivesBack. Just steps away from GiveCampus HQ in Southeast Washington DC, Van Ness is building a brighter future by fostering diversity, community, innovation, and inclusion. 

All gifts to #GCGivesBack will go directly to the Van Ness Elementary Parent Teacher Organization to help fund the critical programs and resources that enrich their students' lives. And every gift—no matter the size—will help us unlock our goal of 154 donors (one donor for each GiveCampus partner school represented at #GCPC2020!).

Thank you in advance for supporting our mission and helping Van Ness to grow a generation of compassionate, creative, constant learners. 

Van Ness Elementary School is an innovative public elementary school in the heart of Southeast Washington DC. Since opening in 2015, Van Ness has transformed into an engaging and beautiful place where children, families and educators come together to create an inclusive community that provides authentic experiences and engages the whole child. Van Ness is a place where every student— no matter their socioeconomic means— can thrive.

The Van Ness model cultivates a generation of critical thinkers who are confident, curious, and compassionate members of society and seek to improve their lives, their communities and their world.

In addition to making a gift, you can help support #GCGivesBack and Van Ness Elementary by becoming an Advocate. Visit our Social Media Toolkit or the Advocate Dashboard to get started.
