Valley View Education Foundation

  • The Valley View Educational Foundation strives to provide materials, programs, and technological improvements to promote the educational advancement of Valley View students.

    The Foundation Needs YOU!

    We are seeking board members for the 2017-2018 school year and beyond…

    The Valley View Education Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the needs of our students and staff.  Our goal is to provide technology, programs, and equipment to promote the educational advancement of Valley View students. We have numerous fundraisers throughout the year, however, Campaign for Excellence is our main fundraiser. We ask each family to donate $200 or more per child (which can be made in payment installations) and they receive a special edition Valley View t-shirt. Absolutely 100% of all proceeds go directly to VALLEY VIEW and gives your child(ren) an advantage to prepare them for the increasingly competitive education landscape. While our primary focus is technology, we field grant requests to provide equipment and programs not covered by State, District, or dedicated school site funds.

    There are several ways to contribute and volunteer makes a difference!

     

    HOW DO WE DO IT?

    It is not very easy for everyone to come up with $200 at one time, ESPECIALLY, if you have more than 1 child at the school.

     

    So here’s the plan!! A PAYMENT PLAN!

     

    • You can break it up into 10 monthly payments, and you will receive our Thank You gifts when we receive your checks.
    • For example, if you’d like to donate $200, put 10 checks for $20 each, dated for the 22nd of each month from August to May.
    • We will NOT cash each check until the date.

     

    WE NOW HAVE A SQUARE! Want to use a card? We can take it!!

     

    WAYS TO DONATE:

    Spread the word to your family, extended family and friends! They may want to help us and also get a tax write-off!

     

    Employer Matching Gift Donations -

    • https://www.matchinggifts.com/rit/
    • Include your employer's Matching Gift form! We will gladly fill it out for you. If you don't know what this is, simply check the website to see if your employer offers a matching gift program for charitable contributions, as an employee benefit. Many companies do and it can automatically double or triple your donation, which makes a massive difference to our goal.

    Amazon Smile -

    • https://smile.amazon.com/
    • Choose Valley View Edcation (yes it is spelled incorrectly) Foundation as your charity and we will recieve a small percentage from the sales generated by your purchases. Nice and easy.

     

    WHY WE DO IT?

    For our children! Please consider joining VVEF. Come to one of our monthly meetings (first wednesday evening of every month) and see how hard your money works! 

     

    REMEMBER -
