GVEF color2



The Golden Valley Educational Foundation (GVEF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit created to raise money for Golden Valley Charter Schools. Our mission is to nourish and strengthen the curriculum inspired by Waldorf education at GVCS by raising funds that directly supplement the GVCS budget. Net Spending / Net Fundraising Charts GVEF grants the money we raise directly to the schools—the GVCS Board of Trustees determines how the money is spent.

The kinds of things our fundraising supports include the rent we pay to San Juan Unified School district, teacher training for our teachers to become Waldorf certified, specialty programs like music, gardening, handwork and Spanish, and classroom supplies like paints, beeswax, main lesson books, yarns, etc. Our fundraising programs include the Annual Giving Campaign, the Eagle Chase jog-a-thon, Spring Art Auction and our AmazonSmile program. In 2019-20, GVEF raised $200,000 for our schools.
