Ways to Donate to MVEF
Great Schools Don’t Just Happen!
Help us Make a Difference for Every Child in Every School
The Mountain View Educational Foundation is a volunteer-driven non-profit that relies on individual, community and corporate donors to fund essential programs for our students that would not exist without your generous donations to MVEF. Over 50% of our funds come from individual donors. We rely on YOUR generosity!
With a yearly goal of $750,000, the suggested donation is $500 per student. We strive for 100% participation from our community. Our district has significant economic diversity and gifts at all levels are appreciated. If you are able, we encourage you to give more than the suggested donation.
MVEF is proud of our excellent financial integrity. We rely heavily on our unpaid board and community volunteers to keep operational costs low. Last fiscal year, we spent 87% of our budget directly on programs and services - far above the national average for non-profits. MVEF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit so donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law (Federal Tax ID #77-0006770). View our Annual Reports for details.
