Through our signature fundraising events, BVEF brings together community members, students and teachers to celebrate educational excellence and raise funds to support programs that help Blue Valley exceed traditional classroom limits.
There are many ways to support Blue Valley Schools. We offer the opportunity to pick a sponsorship level and spread the funds across multiple programs and events. This package option allows you to maximize your exposure at a funding level that fits your budget.
“BVEF events are a great way to market your company to the Blue Valley community. They are always well attended, well-run and FUN!”
— Bronson Ko, KOMA Founder and CEO

This year, BVEF celebrated its 33nd annual Community Breakfast! Thank you to the Blue Valley community for joining us for the best "back to school" event in Blue Valley. Guests enjoyed student performers, student emcees, and an opportunity to hear from Superintendent Tonya Merrigan and an outstanding panel of local business and civic leaders. The theme was Our Future's So Bright! The breakfast highlighted our exemplary educators, our mental health and wellness programs and our special education program. Speak Up Foundation was honored for their service, generosity, and commitment to the district as the 2023 Best of Blue Valley Hall of Fame inductee! The Foundation raised a record-setting $400,000 through the event, dollars that will be used to fund classroom grants and impact grants benefiting the entire District.
Please contact Susan Tideman if you would like information about the 34th annual Community Breakfast. It's never too early to support the Blue Valley Schools.
Breakfast sponsorship makes a tremendous impact on our district and provides teacher and classroom grants, district-wide performing arts initiatives, a diverse schedule of mental health and wellness programs, and funds teacher recruitment and retention efforts.
Individual tickets to the event are $100 each. Please use 'Other amount' to buy more than two individual tickets. August 2024 event tickets will be available in late Spring 2024.
