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.

Contribute to the Arts!

Make your family’s annual tax-deductible donation today to help keep the art, music, and dance programs in our Bennett Valley schools. Elementary schools do not receive state funding for the arts which means 100% of the enrichment programs your child receives are made possible by the fundraising efforts of BVEF.
