Dear LVUSD Family,
On behalf of THE Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools, we would like to thank every parent, business leader, and community member who met the challenge to Save Our Schools during the 2020-2021 academic year.
After a year filled with uncertainty and challenges, we look forward to the return to full-time on-campus instruction for our students in the Fall.
Thanks to the generous donations of families like yours and government-supported COVID-relief funding, LVUSD is excited to be implementing a Strategic Plan that will provide targeted class size reduction in secondary schools, centralized STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) education for elementary students, full-time library and media centers across the district, and increased mental and academic support.
Your donations allowed THE Foundation to support these initiatives by investing in tools and supplies for STEAM education, funding more teachers per student to enable class reduction and strengthening the LVUSD Counseling Center.
In order to maintain and continue to enhance these programs, we ask that each family make an annual gift to THE Foundation. Our goal is 100% LVUSD-family participation.
While a gift of even $50 will help The Foundation sustain LVUSD’s Strategic Plan, we encourage you to invest in your children’s education by donating $500 to become a member of our VIP Club or $1,000 to join our Honor Roll. These groups enjoy district-wide recognition as well as many benefits from special access to events to exclusive opportunities and experiences. During 2020, VIP members were treated to a star-studded comedy night, a family-friendly magic show, and early access to tickets to a sold-out wine-tasting event. Although we are still in the process of putting our 2021-2022 lineup together, we look forward to a year of unforgettable in-person experiences.
While it’s vital to support our individual schools directly, they are not allowed to directly fund many important expenses such as teachers and counselors. This is why in 2010, a group of parents from across the district created T.H.E. Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools: Together Helping Education. As leaders of THE Foundation Board, we are renewing our commitment to unite businesses, community members, and district families to give our children the learning and support opportunities they deserve.
Please contribute today by visiting thefoundationlvs.org to make your tax-deductible donation. We accept credit cards, checks, and even direct stock transfers and charitable IRA rollovers.
Together, we can make LVUSD stronger than ever. Please contact us with any questions or if you are interested in volunteering to help THE Foundation.
Jeannie Abraham, President

P.S. When making your gift, be sure to indicate the school(s) your child/children attend. Awards will be given to the schools with the highest percentage of family participation!
