Development Committee

Development Committee


The Development Committee volunteers provide fundraising advice and support to Nova.

Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools like Nova are at a financial disadvantage. We cannot raise needed funds through local tax levies the way traditional public school districts do. This means Nova receives about $3,500* less per student each school year than local public schools. (*See article on St. Paul public v. charter funding. Please note, this amount changes year to year.)
