Your SUPPORT is Critical

Dear Parents:

Programs and services are at risk without your support.   California recognizes and awards Scotts Valley Schools as some of the best statewide, but State funding formulas have left our schools some of the lowest funded.  Scotts Valley Educational Foundation (SVEF) has been supporting our students since 1983 as a local non-profit organization that raises resources to support quality educational programs at all four Scotts Valley schools and fill the gap left in state funding.   We are the only organization that provides direct financial support to your child’s education from Kindergarten through High School. 

In the past 5 years, SVEF donated over $500,000, toward your child’s education!

  • SVEF funded all four school libraries  for the last 4 years;
  • SVEF paid to reinstate and expand counseling services at all four schools;
  • SVEF funded technology needs on each campus;
  • SVEF underwrote GLAD training for our teachers;
  • AND MORE! (view our annual report HERE to learn more)

In addition, SVEF continues to secure incredible grants which have improved technology in SVHS science classrooms  and improved our Life Lab programs at both elementary schools. SVEF is also building an endowment for the future of our District and is administering the Lynn Beebe Memorial Scholarship.

However, your tax deductable donations continue to be our greatest source of income.  PLEASE consider making a donation, so we can keep school libraries open and provide intervention counseling to students who are having problems inside and outside the classroom. Just $1 a day will make a huge impact on your child’s education.  We also need volunteers to help support our various fundraisers.  If you’d be interested in learning more about Board positions or if you’d like to support our events – The Christmas Tree Lot, Community Partner Program or the Mountain Charlie Challenge visit our Volunteer page HERE.
