On Thursday, June 4, 2015, MVEF President Karen Heitkamp presented the final check to the Mountain View Whisman School District Board of Trustees and Interim Superintendent Kevin Skelly.  This has been a great accomplishment, but we can do better!  We will be significantly increasing our program support next year -- our fundraising goal for 2015-16 is $700,000.  We'll need everyone to give more next year!
