The Sun Valley Alumni Association was established as the clearinghouse of information and communication for alumni as well as to establish and maintain an endowment that will award scholarships to deserving graduates for years to come. The Sun Valley High School (Aston, Pa.) Alumni Association is dependent on membership dues and donations to provide these benefits. Continue to support our beloved Valley for past, present, and future Vanguards by paying your annual membership!
Annual paid membership in the SVAA is $20 per calendar year with the option of paying $75 for a five-year membership. Payment can be made through the Paypal links below or by sending a check payable to Sun Valley High School (Pa.) Alumni Association to PO Box 2087, Aston, PA 19014. A copy of the membership application can be found here. Please email us with any questions.
Other Ways to Give
As a registered 501(c)3, non-profit, we can facilitate multi-levels of donations, from individual, estate, or corporate giving. See below for more info and please email us with any questions.
The Blue and Gold Standard:
The “Blue and Gold of Giving” is an option for those alumni who wish to increase their generosity to higher level of giving. The Blue level is for donations up to and including $1,000. The gold standard is for gifts of over $1,000. The name of these donors will be listed on the website (unless the donor requests to remain anonymous).
The multi-year giving opportunity is an option for those alumni who are interested in making a sustaining gift to the scholarship program. The name of these donors will be listed on the website (unless the donor requests to remain anonymous).
Many people have the misconception that only “the well to do” have estates. The truth is, whether it is large or small, every one of us will have some sort of estate when we pass away. You can easily include the SVAA in your will, or you can include a “Letter of Instruction” that your executor will carry out. You can also specify a cash amount or a structured gift. You can include the SVAA as a beneficiary to an insurance policy, an IRA or a 401K. We would ask that you consult your tax preparer or your financial consultant for any special instructions.
Last but not least, the most important of them all-class giving. The graduating classes of Sun Valley High School are the true backbone of this organization. One of the ways that graduated classes can help is to apply a $1.00 fee to each of their reunion tickets. This money would then go directly into the SVAA scholarship fund. Another way to help is through a “special gift” given by the class. Many classes are closing out their reunions at the fifty year mark. So far, a number of these classes have given the balance of their class account to the SVAA scholarship program. We would hope that each class, as they “come of age” would consider this worthy undertaking.
