The purpose of our Annual Campaign is to raise money from District families, community members, and business partners that provides critical supplementation to PVSD’s General Fund.
PVSD is a Basic Aid District which means, because of our high property taxes, the State of California contributes only ~7% to our operating budget.
Our goal in the 2018-’19 school year is to raise at least $900,000 so we can provide excellent supplemental programs like music, physical education, and foreign language instruction. Most importantly, we are able to recruit and retain excellent teachers, provide funds to hire classroom aides and learning specialists, and offer all students counseling services.
Maintaining these qualities, programs, and services that many of us consider essential to our childrens’ education is possible because of our ability to supplement PVSD’s funding with successful Annual Campaigns, year after year.
We are proud to live in a District where nearly 80% of District families and hundreds of community members and business partners have contributed to the campaign year after year.
The Foundation’s contribution generally accounts for ~6% of the overall budget in the General Fund. Most of that contribution is collected during our Annual Campaign but also comes from the Foundation’s bi-annual auction and Endowment Grants. Learn more about the General Fund
