Fountain Valley School of Colorado empowers alumni to make text to donate gifts at consecutive annual reunion weekends.
Background- FVS is dedicated to providing a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum in academics, athletics and the arts. Their community endeavors to foster a lifelong love of challenge and learning in an environment of diversity and mutual respect, and to prepare adolescents to become individuals who are open-minded, curious, courageous, self-reliant and compassionate.
Alumni Weekend- With more than 4,500 alumni spread across the country and the world—FVS has vibrant alumni community and is dedicated to hosting gatherings, sharing alumni news, and promoting supportive and generous donations to the school.
Every Summer FVS hosts a alumni reunion weekend during which they fundraise for the school.

Here are the mobile pledging statistics from the past two years:
Mobile Pledging Statistics:
2009: 88 pledges for $12,836
2010: 60 pledges for $17,284
