Hello West Valley Families!
We are halfway through week 2 of our 6 week fundraising campaign. To date we have raised just over $20,000, about 16% of our $125,000 goal. If you have already donated, THANK YOU! If not, there is still time! Funds raised though this direct ask campaign are used to pay for programs and support staff not funded by the district such as Art, Music, C-Lab, Instructional Aides, Technology Support and Infrastructure, Library Support and Books, Reading and Math Intervention, Enrichment Programs, Community Events and so much more! The suggested donation amount this year is $450 per family with one student, plus $150 for each additional student at West Valley. Please donate what you can - every donation makes a difference! We are striving for 100% participation from all West Valley families.
Don’t forget that corporate matching is a great way to make your donation go further. Many local companies participate in corporate matching for non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. Here are some examples: Abbvie, Adobe, Apple, Avago, Boston Scientific, Broadcom, Cadence, Cisco, Citrix, Dell, Facebook, Genentech, Gigamon, Google, Illumina, Intel, Intuit, JSR Micro, Juniper, Kaiser, LinkedIn, Marvell, Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia, PayPal, Qualcomm, Salesforce, Samsung, SAP, Symantec, Synopsys, TiVo, Verizon, VMWare, and Yahoo! If you don’t see your company’s name on this list, ask your HR department if your company participates. Also, if you make your individual donation through your company’s corporate match program (through a 3rd party site such as Benevity, YourCause, EasyMatch, etc.), please fill out and return the attached contribution form with a copy of your donation receipt so we can account for it.
Attention Apple Employees: “Effective 1/1/18 through end of calendar year, Apple will match qualifying charitable donations 2-for-1. There’s no minimum donation amount or limit on the number of donations per year.” This is an amazing opportunity to turn a donation of $450 into $1350 for our school!
