Celebrating Success

For 19 years, the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation’s mission has been to inspire, educate and prepare each student in Sonoma for a successful future. Thanks to community donations, we’ve been able to raise more than $4 million over the years, used to fund much-needed public school enhancement. In fact, we’re proud to say every single local school and every single classroom has received funding from the SVEF, as have all of our local school PTO's and the high school BOOSTERS CLUB. 

When you donate to the SVEF, your money goes to one of four Primary programs: the Teacher Support Network, Exploratorium Science Project, Visual Thinking Strategies, the Sonoma Valley Garden Program, as well as our TEACHER GRANT Program, LINKED LEARNING PATHWAYS at Sonoma Valley HIgh School, and the EL VERANO PRESCHOOL. Each program is proven successful, and even a donation of $5 can make a huge difference. Donate today
