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!
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.

The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation is honored to announced the Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant, providing selected Scotts Valley High School students with financial assistance to obtain professional counseling and guidance as they plan for acceptance into college.
Lynn was a long-time and much loved SVUSD staff member. Her years of service to the students here included teaching, counseling, athletic coaching as well as athletic director. In her latter years she embarked on a new career as an independent, private college counselor. After her death in early 2012, SVEF collected donations in her honor and worked with her parents Jack and Jan Beebe to establish the grant and place it into an endowment fund. Lynn took great pride in connecting with students and helping them navigate the path to a successful future, and the endowment will ensure the grant’s perpetuity, keeping alive Lynn’s passion and dedication to students.
Applications for the Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant will be available to SVHS students starting in March 2013, with the first recipients announced in May. Continued donations will enable an increased number of SVHS students to be served.
