VPEF supports S.O.S & Gave DONATION!!
VPEF, Vacaville Public Education Foundation, is supporting the S.O.S. Fundraising Campaign! They have even given a $1,000 donation to help kick of the campaign.
The Vacaville Public Education Foundation was formed in 2003 by a determined group of parents, community leaders, elected officials, senior citizens, and businessmen and women. They came together to address the crisis in public education funding that grips California every year and is most severe when the sales taxes and capital gains taxes fall.
The Vacaville Public Education Foundation is a very successful organization that has significantly contributed to the success of the Vacaville Unified School District. The Vacaville Public Education Foundation provides opportunities for students and teachers to engage in learning experiences that otherwise would not be funded by the school district. In addition to the much-appreciated money they raise and commit to the kids of Vacaville, they really boost the morale of all teachers and principals by the hard work, dedication and love shown to our teachers and students each year. When our teachers and kids know others care about them and are willing to work so hard on their behalf, it injects motivation and energy into our schools. I am so grateful and thankful for all the good work they do that benefits everyone in the city of Vacaville.
In their tenure, they have raised and allocated over $1.8 million for the children of our schools. The money has been used for specific programs in the following general areas: academics, athletics, music, library, health and safety, counseling and the GATE program. They have received over a thousand testimonials from parents, teachers and students about how these grants have made a direct, positive impact on students of the Vacaville Unified School District.
