Investing in Children •  Enriching our Community

 

   
 
 


You can champion teachers and ignite innovation...

Your generous support provided 81 innovative classroom grants totaling $74,000 this year touching thousands of children’s lives.

Your gift today empowers an educator, transforms a classroom and deepens students’ learning experiences. All gifts of $1,000 or more are recognized on permanent signage at the school district office. 

  Support innovation in education by giving to the area of greatest need.

 
  VEPGrants give VUSD educators the opportunity to apply for up to    
$1000 for an innovative project. Teachers work with tight classroom 
budgets that limit opportunities for innovation. Your gift of any size 
makes a big impact. Gifts of $5,000 or more include co-sponsorship.

  Think BIG! VEPGrants provide an opportunity for educators to apply
for a larger grant of $5,000. These grants are often multidisciplinary,
across grade levels or schools and must be collaborative. We will 
offer Think BIG! in February 2020 and welcome gifts of $5,000 or more.
   
    DATE TBD

VEPGrant recipients will present their groundbreaking ideas that inspire
innovation and lifelong learning. Speakers to be announced in Dec.
Funds raised support VEPGrants.

Why Innovation? Because it’s vital for our children to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Innovation fosters real world problem solving, lifelong learning, collaboration and more ~ skills that connect students to school now and are essential for future success.   

Thank You!
