Ways to Give
Groves Academy is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit educational institution (tax ID number: 41-0979871) that relies on philanthropic support to continue to transform lives through education.
Support the Ben Ruedisili Legacy Fund
Ben was a student who fully embodied the mission of Groves Academy. He was a friend to anyone who knew him. The Ben Ruedisili Legacy Fund was established to honor Ben’s memory and make a difference in the lives of other students. Ben’s family has requested that all memorial gifts be directed to the Groves Academy Scholarship Fund.
”The last year and a half at Groves Academy gave us back our son — his spark, confidence, swag, and joy.”
A donation in any amount can help make a difference in the life of a student who is struggling to learn. Will you help another student regain their spark by making a donation in honor of Ben? Please complete the form below to make a donation.
There are many ways to make a tax-deductible donation. We accept cash, check, or credit card. Your gift will go further if made via check or cash because credit card companies deduct fees from all transactions. If you wish to cover the cost of the credit card fees, please add the amount of the processing fee (3%) to the total gift.
Give to the Annual Fund
Making a donation to the Groves Academy Annual Fund makes an immediate impact on our students, staff, families, and the broader community.
Why support the Groves Academy Annual Fund?
The annual fund is an important part of our advancement program. Contributions to the annual fund are essential to the day-to-day operations of the school and are 100% tax deductible for the donor. These funds help fill the gap in the operating budget that is not covered by tuition and other fees. They help to pay for everything that facilitates the teaching in the classrooms, like instructional materials and equipment, and facilities and utilities.
Why is donating to the Annual Fund important?
The school’s financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all donors. Your participation in the Annual Fund generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join you in supporting the school, and it is a key indicator to foundation and corporate donors that we have consistent support from those we serve, both past and present.
Join the Grandparents Club
Grandparents are a special part of the Groves Academy community. The purpose of the Grandparents Club is to help nurture the relationship between our students and their grandparents and provide ongoing financial support to the Scholarship Fund at Groves Academy.
How to join the Grandparents Club
A minimum annual gift of $250 to the Scholarship Fund at Groves Academy enrolls you in the Grandparents Club. More than 30% of Groves students receive tuition assistance and your participation in the Grandparent’s Club helps provide scholarship support to students who might otherwise not be able to attend Groves Academy.
Grandparents Club member benefits
Member benefits include invitations to Groves Academy events, such as Grandparents’ Day, and special updates from Groves, including a subscription to the bi-annual Connections magazine. Members are also encouraged to write a personal note to their grandchild, which will be hand-delivered to their classroom.
