The Money we have raised and what is coming up next

Towards our districts budget shortfall we have raised over $78k.  That includes money from Dollar a Day and $14k from Community Day.

Tutoring Club – SVEF would like to give our thanks to the Tutoring Club of Scotts Valley.  Pat Perkins and Randy Klein have generously donated application fees directly to the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation, totaling over $1000 this year alone!  Last year, their donations reached nearly $500.  Not only do they support us financially, but their efforts to support our students in their learning process are critical.  Randy also acts as the advisor to the Interact Club at the High School, which is the student version of Rotary.  Thank you Pat and Randy for your support of our schools and our students.

SV Holiday Boutique – The holiday boutique opened in King’s Village Shopping Center during the month of December featured many local artists that were willing to contribute a portion of their sales to either SVEF or Second Harvest Food Bank.  During the month, $2686.24 was directed to SVEF.  Thank you to the artist and organizers for making that happen.

Grant Committee – There is still time to join the grant-writing committee that will be working on submitting grant applications to support programs in SVUSD.  No experience necessary!  Much of the work can be done on your own time, and from home or office.  Please contact Allison Niday at 439-1733 or [email protected], if you are interested.

Community Day – Mark your calendars for September 10, 2011 for the second annual Community Day.  Support both the SVEF and our local businesses while raising much needed money for our schools. Stay tuned for more information on this great event!
