Welcome to the Perkiomen Valley School District Foundation
The Perkiomen Valley School District Foundation is an independent, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization created to encourage excellence by enhancing and enriching the educational opportunities offered to the students of the Perkiomen Valley School District. We thank you for taking some time to learn more about our organization.
Our mission is to provide funding for programs that would not otherwise be available through tax dollars or other traditional sources. Last year, the Foundation provided more than $42,000 in grants to support learning in the Perkiomen Valley School District.
What People Are Saying About Us
On behalf of everyone at Skippack Elementary – thank you! The laptop cart is an outstanding addition to our technology hardware and takes us a step closer to providing each student with an opportunity to utilize technology for learning. We appreciate the support of the Foundation.”
Ryan Stanson-Marsh, Principal of Skippack Elementary School
In 2011, the Foundation supplied an iPad and an Apple TV to our computer lab that teaches computer science courses. The engagement, interaction and excitement that this new technology has created for my students create an ideal learning environment. It has truly transformed the way I teach. Recently, the donations received from Ambler Savings Bank allowed the Foundation to purchase 10 iPads for student use. Specifically we plan on creating and testing apps and learning how the hardware and software interact. It is something we have never been able to do and it is made possible by the generosity of community members, administration and the Foundation. Thank you for giving me the tools to make learning cutting edge and exciting!”
Dan Pennebacker, Business/Computer Teacher at Perkiomen Valley High School
Many thanks to the Perkiomen Valley Foundation for giving all of our PVHS students an opportunity to meet and hear from Jullien Gordon during our annual Career Fair in November 2013. Mr. Gordon is a motivational speaker, author and performance coach whose company has worked with Fortune 100 companies, start-ups, non-profits and universities to recruit talent and increase productivity. His speeches have been shared via TED Talks and focus on career advancement, finding purpose, goal achievement and closing the college-to-career gap. By partnering with the Foundation, we were able to provide an opportunity that would otherwise not have existed for 1,800 students. The feedback that we received from our students was overwhelmingly positive. Thank you!”
