What do we Support? 

Venture Mini Grants:
The venture grant program is designed to provide resources for teachers to implement innovative learning experiences in their classrooms.  Teachers apply through a competitive grant process to access funds. Some examples of funded projects include: Artists in residence, robotics for computer coding, and furnishings to create a unique student study area.


Scholarships and Awards:
More than twenty outstanding student scholars and athletes benefit annually from awards and scholarships established through the Foundation.  The size and number of awards given continues to grow due to the generosity of donors who wish to recognize student achievement.
An endowment, in honor or in memory of an individual, can be established thus providing  scholarships in perpetuity.  For more information on how you can assure students have the needed resources to continue learning beyond high school, contact the Foundation.    


Student Activities and Athletics:
The Foundation is committed to enrich the school experience for PV students by providing resources for uniforms, equipment, travel, and classroom or field improvements.  Recent donor directed gifts have placed electronic time clocks on the football field and replaced a flag pole on the baseball field.


PV Alumni Reception:
Fifty Year alumni are invited to participate in the Penns Valley Area High School graduation ceremony.  Prior to the ceremony, the Foundation hosts a reception in their honor. This event gives alumni an opportunity to reconnect with classmates, tour facilities, meet students and staff  and learn about school life today.
