Livermore Valley Education Foundation

LVEF Overview

  • The Livermore Valley Education Foundation (LVEF) was organized in 1991 by concerned parent volunteers when Livermore was faced with budget cuts that directly affected the ability to retain teachers in arts and athletics. The LVEF, established as a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, directs donations to district programs that donors identify as vital to educational excellence. The foundation regularly consults with District staff to determine where funding is most needed and then oversees the distribution on a district wide basis. 

    Since its inception the foundation has given over $3.8 million in support of programs (Academics, Arts, and Athletics) as well as awards to LVJUSD students and staff members. The Livermore Valley Education Foundation has an all-volunteer board, and its expenses are minimal (about 1% in administrative and 5% in fundraising costs). 

    For more information and/or to donate, please visit the LVEF website.

Thank You, LVEF!

  • A generation of students has benefitted from the ongoing generosity of LVEF. We are grateful for their support! Over the years, LVEF has contributed to arts, athletics, and academics. Their donations to our district have provided funds to purchase musical instruments and athletic equipment. They have supported staff. 

    Today, we thank LVEF for the So Wise So Young program that introduces all of our second graders to the works of William Shakespeare. In partnership with Livermore Shakes, LVEF adds to the arts education of 1,000 students annually.

    Thanks to LVEF, all of our high school football players are protected by state-of-the art helmets with anti-concussion technology.

    Dozens of LVJUSD teachers are able to support innovative programs thanks to the generosity of LVEF grants.

    And, for years, high school seniors have received scholarships thanks to LVEF.

    We are grateful for our foundation!
