Where did the 2010 Community Day dollars go? – Last year Community Day raised $14,000 for the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation (SVEF). Community Day proceeds will go toward the $55,000 the SVEF is donating for the 2011-2012 school year to pay for Library Aides at all four schools! This is a critical need and a HUGE win for our schools.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Tis the season to enjoy all of our holidays, family and friends! I personally wish all of you all the very best for the holidays and a Happy New Year to come.

As I approach the end of my SVEF Presidency, I would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers that help to make the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation a continuing success. We have such great support from our schools, students, families, service clubs and the community. I can’t thank you all enough for you efforts and devotion to the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation

This year we have raised $110,606 that will all go our schools. We raise money through our events and Dollar a Day campaign. See the breakdown below:

  • Mt. Charlie Challenge – $29,608
  • Business Partnership Program – $5,166
  • Dollar A Day Campaign – $57,885
  • Community Day – $14,988
  • Miscellaneous donations – $2,959

We estimate that we will make over $10,000 on the tree lot (not included in the amount above).

I am please to announce that Allison Niday will be the new SVEF President for the New Year. Allison’s energy and commitment will keep SVEF a vital community organization.

We will not hold our December meeting this month will will resume January 20th.

Donate to Dollar a Day Today

Because of projected State budget cuts, our District will be forced to cut $950,000 from the 2011-2012 school year and another $950,000 from the 2012-2013 school year. Our schools and our children need your help.  Without it we face the potential of increased class sizes, closure of the libraries, elimination of custodians and even a shorten school year. Read more about it in this week’s Press Banner Article.

We are suggesting $365 per student. There are two ways to donate money by paypal; click on the paypal button to make monthly payments or click on the paypal button to make a one time donation in any amount. Click here to donate by paypal.

Checks can be made out to Scotts Valley Educational Foundation and mailed to:

245-M Mt. Hermon Rd, Box 150
Scotts Valley, CA  95066

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
