Gifts & Giving


We did it, Vikings!

This historic day of giving brought together more than 800 Vikings from across 29 states (including Alaska!), who donated over $386,000​ to support our incredible school, faculty and students. Thank you for showing your Viking spirit and support in such a powerful way.
Now, let’s celebrate, All Day 4 CA!

Commonly Asked Questions

List of 6 items.

  • What does my gift support?

    Your gift has an impact where it is needed most: the current school year’s Annual Fund supporting faculty members and their continuous innovation in the classroom, as well as student tuition assistance, both of which ensure Academy students experience a richness and breadth of education that few other schools can match.
  • What is GiveCampus?

    GiveCampus is a web-based, social fundraising platform that makes it easy for individuals to give and engage other alumni, parents, faculty/staff, friends and family in supporting the school that they care about in a fun and interactive way.
  • Do I need to create a log-in to make a gift?

    No.  Anyone can make a gift, share with their network, and even create a match or challenge without logging in to GiveCampus. 
  • Will my name and donation amount be visible?

    Your name will appear, but your donation amount is confidential and will not be displayed. If you do not want your name displayed, you may choose to remain anonymous when you make your gift.
  • After I share with my family and friends, can I see how they respond?

    Yes!  To track your individual impact as an "Advocate," you must first create a log-in for GiveCampus to receive unique links to share with your network. Then visit the “Advocates” tab, where the number of clicks and donations you generate will be tallied automatically under your name. If you choose to share without creating a log-in, your impact statistics will be combined with others and tallied together under the name “Community Advocates.”
  • Should I give again if I've already participated in this year's Annual Fund?

    Yes, please!  Your additional gift will help our community reach our $100,000 matching goal and contribute to the “all in” spirit of this special day. Your extra donation will also help the school with its top fundraising initiative: to inspire increased annual support from all members of our community. A healthy, growing Annual Fund is needed to sustain CA’s tradition of academic excellence and fuel curricular innovation as the school begins to make progress toward its recently announced Strategic Vision.

Special thanks to seven anonymous alumni and current school families who generously provided matching funds and inspired us to embark on this day of Viking giving
