WVPTO Direct Donation Drive: 7 Reasons to Donate Today!
Wed, Mar 15 9:53pm

Thank you to those who have already donated to the annual West Valley Parent Teacher Organization (WVPTO) Direct Donation Drive! In the first two weeks, we have raised almost $10,000 toward our $125,000 goal. With less than a month left in the campaign, we have a long way to go!

In recent years, we have been using funds from savings in order to avoid cutting major programs that enrich the West Valley experience for our students daily. This year’s Direct Donation Drive is crucial in getting back to a balanced budget and will make an immediate impact on decisions for the upcoming school year.

In the 2023-2024 school year, the WVPTO hopes to continue to support these 7 programs (and more!):

How To Donate

The WVPTO is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. To donate, please choose one of the following options:

  • Drop off or mail a check payable to WVPTO: Print and complete the paper donation form, attach your check, and drop it off in the WVPTO Box in the front office or mail to:
    P.O. Box 2032, Sunnyvale, CA 94087

  • Corporate Match Program: Donate through your company’s corporate match program. This may be through a third party site such as Benevity, BrightFunds, EasyMatch, YourCause, etc. Check your internal company website or with your HR department for more details. Please also fill out the online donation form so we can properly record and allocate the donation(s).

Corporate Matching

Don’t forget that corporate matching is a great way to make your donation go further! Many local companies participate in corporate matching (many 1:1 or even 2:1) for non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. Last year over one third of our total donations came from corporate matches! To find out more, please visit our Corporate Match page at www.wvpto.org/corporate-match-faq or check with your employer’s HR department.

The suggested donation amount is $500 per family with one student, plus $250 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 current and incoming West Valley families.
