Central Virginia Governor’s School Foundation
The faculty and staff of the Central Virginia Governor's School are grateful to the families and community partners who donate to the CVGS Foundation. Foundation funds support student research projects, student trips to research laboratories and research symposia, access to advanced technologies, and other instructional activities. In addition, the Scholarship Endowment provides funding for between three and five annual Foundation Scholarships of $1,000 as well as for named scholarships and awards such as the Faculty Award of Excellence, the Brandi Nichols Leadership Award, and the Larbie Mensah Scholarship, each of which also comes with $1,000 for college expenses. Our newest scholarships are the Ann C. Wells Scholarships, two $15,000 scholarships which are each renewable for 3 additional years for a total of $60,000 per student!

If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation to the Governor's School Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, please go to the 5-Year Pledge Campaign page. You will find all the information you need on that page, and thank you in advance for your support of the Governor's School.
