At the beginning of the school year, the MVEF Board of Directors committed to supporting critical programs in the Mountain View Whisman School District with a grant of $486,500. In the elementary schools, these funds support art and music classes, Playworks training and staff for recess playgrounds, a fifth grade honor choir, and hands-on science kits. In the middle schools, the grant supports after-school sports, extended-day electives, musical instrument repair and purchase, and science labs. MVEF also provided a technology grant for the special education program.
We couldn't provide these critical programs without YOU -- our generous donors. MVEF supports programs at all district schools, aligned with the curriculum, that are not sufficiently funded by other sources of money, and that are essential to providing a well-rounded and high-quality education. Thank you for your support!
Silicon Valley Gives was a online giving day presented by Silicon Valley Community Foundation to benefit more than 600 nonprofits in the area. For 24 hours, donations to participating groups may be eligible for matches, prizes and other benefits. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the first $5000 in gifts to the MVEF Endowment were eligibile for a matching grant.
At the end of the day, MVEF had received $12,975 in donations to the Endowment and $3,410 in donations for our annual fund. With the $5,000 match, and after administrative costs, a total of $20,582 was raised for our schools. THANK YOU to all the donors and volunteers that made SVGives a success!
The Mountain View Educational Foundation works collaboratively with the community to raise funds for essential programs with a goal of ensuring a well-rounded education for all Mountain View Whisman School District students.
