As a public charter school, Elmwood Village Charter Schools receive approximately half as much of the New York State educational funding that is granted to the district school competitors. In contrast to other Buffalo Public Schools, charter schools do not have separate funding for facilities and are expected to derive all operational costs from this funding.

EVCS has successfully accomplished more for our students with less state financial support. Our commitment to small class size naturally limits our income and makes fundraising that much more important.

To that end, we hold fundraising opportunities throughout the year, as well as ongoing “passive” campaigns like Box Tops for Education and Amazon Smile (search and select Elmwood Village Charter Schools at Amazon Smile). These fundraising events are vital to the life of our school and the success of our students.
