Art, Music, Science, Athletics & More for Every MVWSD Student!
The Mountain View Educational Foundation is a volunteer-driven non-profit that works in collaboration with the community to bring essential programs to all eleven Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD) schools. Public funding is not enough! We raise and distribute critical funds that the government does not provide, ensuring that all our students get a competitive, well-rounded education.
For the 2019-20 school year, MVEF's goal was to raise $800,000 to fund these core programs:
Art and music lessons provided by Community School of Music and Arts instructors
Hands-on science and environmental field trips
Middle school science lab materials and elementary school science kits
Garden-based lessons taught by Living Classroom
Middle school after-school athletics
Instrument repair and purchase
Professional development for MVWSD educators
Over seventy percent of our funding comes from donations from parents! These programs would not exist without your generous support. See how you can help!
What We Fund
Thanks to the incredible generosity of parents and community partners, we exceeded our fundraising goal and were able to grant extra funds to each school in response to COVID-19 and to support online learning needs in these unprecedented times. MVEF is grateful to live in a diverse community where education is supported and valued. We are proud to help fund an equitable education for all our students. Thank you and congratulations to all MVWSD 8th grade graduates!
MVEF extends a warm welcome to our new Executive Director, Dena Seki!
"Art and music are critical for all children, and MVEF makes it available to every child who attends MVWSD. Art and music provide a creative outlet for kids; they also provide mental, emotional, and educational benefits!"
