Who We Are
The Portola Valley Schools Foundation is a non-profit, all volunteer organization and is the primary vehicle for private financial support for the Portola Valley School District. The Foundation typically contributes more than 10% of the District’s budget annually which helps provide small class sizes, classroom aides, reading specialists, physical education, and music and art programs.
Thanks to the generous support by families, friends, neighbors, staff, teachers, alumni, and local businesses, we have been able to provide critical financial support to the District to deliver an exceptional education to our children.
The Foundation raises money for both immediate and long-term needs. The Foundation provides over 10% of the District’s budget each year, benefiting each student at Ormondale and Corte Madera Schools.
While the Annual Campaign and the Auction (Gala) raise new funding each year to meet this need, the Endowment makes grants for ongoing investments in infrastructure, programs, and staff development using the interest generated by capital raised over many years.
We sincerely appreciate donations of any amount that is appropriate for your family or business. Donations are tax-deductible. Our tax ID is 93-1012148.
