The Spring Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) is dedicated to academic success at Spring Valley High School for every student at every level. Established in 1983, it is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, tax exempt organization with a solid 30 year track record. It is governed by an active volunteer Board of Directors composed of corporate, civic, educational, alumni and parent leaders.
The purpose of the Spring Valley Education Foundation is to raise funds and promote educational programs through the donation of goods, services, and money from corporations, business groups, foundations and individuals. The SVEF acts as a fiscal agent for donors who wish to sponsor special projects or programs. It administers both "designated" and unrestricted gifts.
The Spring Valley Education Foundation has been tremendously successful in its efforts. Fund raising projects have netted over three quarters of a million dollars in the past ten years. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts-in-kind have been infused into the school. This community-based effort is able to provide the "extras" not available through tax dollars. The exceptional environment made possible by this support has helped this award winning high school to excel and recently be named among the best in the nation by Newsweek Magazine and the Siemens Foundation.
Gifts to or through the Spring Valley Education Foundation may be by clicking on the Donate Now button above or a check payable to 'SVEF ' and sent to SV Education Foundation, 120 Sparkleberry Lane, Columbia, SC 29229. Please indicate if "unrestricted" or name the program or group (example "Annual Fund"), to which it should be directed.
