What is GVEF?

The Golden Valley Educational Foundation (GVEF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit created to raise money for our two campuses, Golden Valley Orchard and River Schools. Our mission is to nourish and strengthen the curriculum inspired by Waldorf education at GVCS by raising funds that directly supplement the GVCS budget. 

Our fundraising supports many things, including:
— Waldorf-certified teacher training
— specialty programs, such as music, gardening, handwork and foreign language(s)
— class field trip funds
— classroom supplies, such as paints, beeswax, main lesson books, yarns, and more
— the rent we pay to San Juan Unified School district

Over the years, our annual fundraising efforts have included: 
— Annual Giving Campaign (AGC) outreach & support
— Our Fall Eagle Chase jog-a-thon
— Spring Art Auction
— Summer Fireworks Booth

Despite the COVID shutdown, in 2020-21 GVEF raised over $150,000 for our schools!
