The Blue Valley Educational Foundation empowers teachers to go beyond traditional classroom limits to enable our students to innovate, lead, and, most importantly, learn for their futures. Our mission is simple: enrich educational excellence. We accomplish this through the generosity of our community partners that support our outreach, financial development, and ongoing funding of extraordinary educational programs.
Through the grants that we award, we provide the support needed for our teachers and staff to personalize their approach to teaching each student, maximizing outcomes for each and every child in our district. We proudly partner across all parts of our community to ensure that the students in our community have access to all the support they need to be successful.
We invite you to be a catalyst for the future of Blue Valley by sharing the BVEF story.
Not a day goes by when a Blue Valley resident doesn't comment on the quality of our schools and the talent and dedication of our educators. As the executive director of BVEF, these positive affirmations fuel my drive to invite families, local businesses and organizations to make Blue Valley a philanthropic priority. Our mission: enrich educational excellence, empowers teachers and administrators to create outstanding educational opportunities for students, knowing they have the community's support to make their good ideas a reality in the classroom. Please join us in our efforts to support the good work happening in our district. I look forward to working with you.
