Mt. Charlie Challenge Ride Information for Saturday

The Mt. Charlie Challenge ride is this Saturday and we are stoked and ready! We have decided to keep registration open and let new riders sign up on ride day

  • Check-In and Registration is at 7-8am
  • Rain or Shine – but we expect a great day!

Registration Forms
At the check-in and registration area, there will be a table with the information and forms listed immediately below. As part of the County requiring us to obtain a permit this year, the County is requiring our riders to sign a “conditions agreement”. The agreement will be available at check-in for you to sign.

  • Waivers for riders that didn’t send them in yet
  • Additional registration forms for new riders
  • Maps of each route – they have support phone numbers on them
  • Full listing of turns for both routes

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.

The Tutoring Club Continues to Support SVEF

The Tutoring Club announced this week that they will be donating their registration fee directly to Scotts Valley Educational Foundation for students of SVUSD. You can go to their website above for more info or our website, where they are one of our Platinum Sponsors for our Business Partnership Program.

Scotts Valley Rotary Donates to SVEF

RotaryLogoThank you Scotts Valley Rotary Club for donating approximately $2,400 to us.  The Rotary Club put on a fantastic Oktoberfest and every ticket sold to the general public and at SVUSD schools went straight to the  SVEF’s Endowment Fund to support education.

Members of Scotts Valley Rotary contribute to The Rotary Foundation, along with over 1 million other Rotarians and friends of Rotary.  The Rotary Foundation uses these funds for polio eradication, humanitarian grants, and educational programs world-wide.

School Board Forum Oct 8th at 7:30pm

Please come learn about the school board candidates on October 8th at 7:30 pm at the Scotts Valley Community Center. The forum is being sponsored by SVHS Parent Club, SVMS PTA, Brook Knoll PTA, Vine Hill PTA, SVEF, and the League of Women Voters. It is a great opportunity to learn what each candidate stands for.

SVEF is not endorsing any candidate in order to stay neutral. We encourage everyone to attend this forum and learn everything you can about all the candidates so you can make your own informed decision.

Good luck to all the candidates!
