    VVEF

    • WHAT IS VALLEY VIEW EDUCATION FOUNDATION (VVEF)?
      VVEF is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the needs of our students and staff and ensuring our students receive the quality education they deserve. 

    • WHO WE ARE
      We are Valley View parents, just like you. Every year Foundation board members volunteer their time to raise funds that will help provide materials, programs, and technological improvements that promote the educational advancement of our students.

    • WHAT WE DO
      We work closely with teachers to identify appropriate needs throughout the school, and in the classrooms. Contributions to VVEF from our school’s familles enrich our children’s experiences through some of their most formative years.

    • WHY WE DO IT
      For our children! A lot of critical items are not covered by GUSD or the Department of Education. We work to fill in those gaps. These are some of the projects we funded in the last year:

     

     

    HOW DO WE DO IT?
    Foundation’s annual Campaign for Excellence (CFE) raises funds for our school. We ask families to donate to CFE at the beginning of the school year so that we can access the funds to pay for critical needs throughout the school year. We understand every family has different resources, and it is not always easy to come up with a large amount of money at one time, so we also offer payment plans, to spread donation amounts over the course of the year. Every year we also sell Valley View t-shirts and hoodies to raise funds during CFE.

    READY TO JOIN THE TEAM?
    Join the Foundation board and help us determine how our funds are spent! We meet once a month (on Zoom), and there are opportunities to help with fundraising, event planning, communications and marketing, teacher and staff connection, and more! If you have questions, reach out to contactvvef@gmail.com
