Santa Cruz Education Foundation receives Packard Foundation grant

Congratulations to our local friends the Santa Cruz Education Foundation on their recent grant from the Packard Foundation. It’s great to see the approaches everyone takes to raising funds to support our local schools.

The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation raises money through events, business partners, and fundraising. We would love to expand our methods to include grants, but we need volunteers with the desire and commitment (and possibly experience) to help make this happen. If you’re interested, please contact us at [email protected] to get involved.
