Your Contribution Matters

By providing a high-quality education and a safe haven for the children of missionaries, RVA continues to play a foundational role in the missions movement throughout the continent of Africa. We receive many letters from parents assuring us that they could not continue in their ministries were it not for RVA’s presence. The solid Christian environment provided by RVA allows parents to perform their God-given duties with the confidence that their children are receiving excellent care and an outstanding education.

From time to time, people ask how they can contribute toward the ministry of RVA. The fee structure at RVA is designed to provide for all day-to-day operational needs of the school. This is possible largely because all of the missionary staff members raise their own financial support, thus eliminating much of the need for salaries.

Having said this, the school can always benefit from contributions from outside sources. The single greatest contribution you can make is to keep the school in your prayers. We have experienced God’s constant faithfulness, and we give Him the glory for His hand of mercy on us.

Beyond that, financial contributions can also be made toward specific projects (such as our Student Outreach or Professional Development funds), or to the General Project fund where they will be designated by management to the most urgent financial needs of the school. Financial contributions made to the school that require a tax deductible receipt should be sent through our AIM sending offices. Please visit for the contact information of these offices, and for specific instructions regarding donations. Financial gifts not requiring a tax deductible receipt can be arranged directly with the school by emailing the RVA Business Office at [email protected].

Thank you for your interest in and concern for RVA.
