The fundraising focus for this year is to improve Nova’s indoor spaces.  The initial project is to refinish Exhibition Hall into an elegant, scholarly space for student seminars. This currently multipurpose classroom/meeting room would be redesigned in the style of a classic English library with the goal of fostering student dialogue and discussion.  This space will also be used for lower school activities such as Aesop’s Fables, Living History Museum, and the Sail America Expo.

Each Nova student receives an exceptional education tuition free. We want to do even more to give your child the best tools and opportunities possible for a lifetime of learning. Please join us in giving today!

You can give to Nova by visiting any time between November 1st and November 17th.  At the website, search for “Nova Classical” to find Nova’s donation page.  Thank you in advance for your support of Nova’s students.

Give to the Max Day – Win Prizes for Nova!
Your gift will automatically transact on November 17 (at a randomly generated time) to help make Nova eligible for special Give to the Max Day prize incentives: $1,000 Golden Tickets and a $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket!  To increase the odds of Nova receiving Golden Tickets, consider breaking your donation into smaller amounts that are given throughout the day! Nova’s goal is to raise $50,000 on November 17! 

GiveMN Golden Ticket Prizes Incentives!
The GiveMN Golden Ticket prize incentives are an exciting way to boost dollars raised for Nova! Golden Tickets are awarded through an hourly random drawing for a $1,000 Golden Ticket to be awarded to a Minnesota school. That adds up to 24 opportunities for you to help us add an extra $1,000 to a donation of any amount. Two Golden Tickets will be awarded each hour during Give to the Max Day − one will be drawn from an individual donation made to a nonprofit, and another will be drawn from an individual donation made to a school.

At noon and at the end of the day, a Super-Sized Golden Ticket worth $10,000 will be awarded to an organization through a random drawing. The more donations we generate on November 17, the more our chances increase to win an additional $10,000 donation!
