The Bennett Valley Education Foundation raises funds to support and enhance the educational experiences of students of the Bennett Valley Union School District, including district-wide art and music programs.

Our Annual Family Contribution Campaign has started!

Keep art, music and dance in Bennett Valley schools by making your annual donation to BVEF. This is one of our major fundraisers during the school year and 100% of the donations go toward the art programs at Yulupa and Strawberry. While other local districts are cutting arts curriculum, through the fundraising efforts of BVEF we are able to offer art, dance, and music programs for every student, providing the salaries for our fine arts instructors. But we can’t do it without the financial support of our BVUSD families. All programs for the 2020/21 will continue with adjustments made for distance learning.
