Investing in Children •  Enriching our Community




Over the past 10 years, Ventura Education Partnership has provided more than $1.3 million in small grants to VUSD teachers that make a BIG impact on learning. VEPGrants have touched every child in VUSD and have a lasting impact on learning by incentivizing innovation in the classroom and incubating new programs district-wide.

We are grateful to all our donors who make VEPGrants a reality and bring hands on, innovative learning opportunities to VUSD which enrich the experience for both teachers and students.
