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
