Calling All Volunteers

Like other community-led efforts, successful growth in MVEF funding of our local public schools is only possible with the partnership of community volunteers. 

As MVEF funding continues to grow, we can fund even more excellent programs in MVWSD schools. In order to grow, we need more volunteers!

Volunteer opportunities include: 

  • Additional school "influencers" at every school site

  • Volunteers to inspire Gala auction item donations

  • Volunteers to help at the Gala

  • Governing board members

To learn more about these opportunities, please email

About MVEF


The Mountain View Educational Foundation is a volunteer-driven non-profit that brings essential programs to all eleven Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD) schools. Public funding is not enough! We raise critical funds that the government does not provide, ensuring a competitive, well-rounded education.

MVEF aims to raise $1,200,000 this school year (2022-23) in order to fund our art, music, environmental science, middle school sports, clubs and teacher stipends and Reduced Class Sizes by continuing to fund one additional English Language Arts Teacher for each MVWSD middle school for each middle school next school year, 2022-23.

Over 75% of our funding comes from parents! These programs exist only with your generous support.
