Representing Private School Village/Decorum
As a participant, community member, or guest of Private School Village, you represent or are part of a growing and proud community rooted in tenants demonstrated by our forefathers – integrity, strength, perseverance, determination, grace, courage and compassion. As such, you should be mindful of how you handle yourself at all times and in all spaces but especially during a Private School Village or Private School Village-related event, program, activity, or even when just volunteering or having a discussion about the organization. As a part of the Private School Village community, in particular, you are expected to refrain from disruptive behavior, interference of a program, or any non-compliance with requests from staff or security at events, trespassing, soliciting, peddling, loitering, cyber bullying, soliciting others, and any other behavior deemed inappropriate at the discretion of Private School Village leadership.
Private School Village is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to the privacy of our donors and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Donors should check with appropriate accounting professionals to determine specifics around deductions.
Private School Villages contracts with third-party vendors such as PayPal, Square, and Stripe to process donations. As such, by donating to Private School Village, donors agree to the terms, conditions, and policies of these third-party vendors including those related to security. PSV offers donors the opportunity to make online credit card gifts, as well as purchase tickets or merchandise through our website. Credit card information is not stored permanently, and is used only to process the transaction for which it is intended.
Private School Village maintains the highest level of privacy concerning our participants and donors giving. Shortly after a purchase or refund is processed, you will receive a confirmation via email from the third-party vendor on behalf of PSV. You are advised to print out and save a copy of the order confirmation for verification necessary to request refunds or resolve any disputes.
In particular, donations made on our website are managed through PayPal and Stripe and will read "PSVillage," "PSV," or "Private School Village" on your bank statement. Payment transaction details will be emailed to the donor from the vendor, and PSV will also forward a donor acknowledgement for donations of $200 or greater. If donors would like a donation acknowledgement for gifts under $200, they should email email@example.com with that request.
