Totally funded by the SVEF for many years, the Foundation now provides significant financial support through the Annual Fund to the Afterschool Program to ensure that the Media Center is supervised and available to students on a drop in basis after school for testing, study and research Monday - Thursday to 5:00 p.m. Free tutoring by faculty and National Honor Society students is offered Monday through Thursday.


The SVEF was initially established to fund the needs which teachers at Spring Valley High School identified as critical to their effectiveness in the classroom, but not available through tax dollars. Mini Grant (no dollar limit) and Wishing Well ($100 limit) awards fund innovative ideas, projects, activities and resource materials through direct grants twice a year. These may be for school-wide needs, departmental projects or to an individual teacher to enrich academic learning in his/her classroom. Over 800 requests totaling over $400,000 have been funded with proceeds from the auction, golf tournament, and other foundation fund raisers. 


Endowed, Memorial and Business & Technology Scholarships are offered to Seniors each year.  See Scholarship documents below  for description and application form.
