Your SUPPORT is Critical

Dear Parents:

I am sure you would agree that our children are worth whatever it takes. School 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.

Your tax deductible donations continue to be our greatest source of income.  PLEASE consider making a donation so we can keep school libraries open and provide the critical support needed for our children. Just $1 a day will make a huge impact on your child’s education.
