The PVSD Foundation organizes a variety of events throughout the year to raise funds. Those events include:
Catalyst SAT Bootcamp
The PVSD Foundation partners with Catalyst Prep to offer an SAT Bootcamp to help students take the SAT with confidence, momentum and strategies for achievement. The next Bootcamp will be offered March 3 and 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Perkiomen Valley High School. Tuition is just $175. To enroll visit www.CatalystPrep.com and click on the Bootcamp Sign-Up tab on the website’s menu bar or call 800.235.0056. The deadline to enroll in this special prep opportunity is Wednesday, Feb. 28.
The PVSD Foundation wants your gently worn and new shoes (you know the ones in your closet you never wear?). If you’re cleaning out your closets after the holidays and need to get rid of footwear, please bring in your donations to any PV school during school hours through Jan. 12th. We are collecting the shoes to send to Funds2Orgs, which will repurpose the shoes by sending them to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries. We receive a check based on the total weight of the shoes collected. You’ll be recycling, supporting the Foundation, and promoting economies in developing nations! All types of shoes are accepted – even cleats. Shoes must be in pairs – no singles, please.
Join us for food and fun at this event, which will begin at 7 p.m.on Friday, Feb. 2, at Hotel Fiesole, 4046 Skippack Pike in Skippack. Enjoy the chance to get out and mingle with friends while taking part in a silent auction that will include PV-centric prizes designed for both kids and adults, such as free SAT prep classes, a $125 credit toward Community Ed classes, a PV football experience (allowing the winner a chance to be on the field during a home game), passes to PV sporting events, and more! The cost to attend Vikings in the Village is $50 per person. Send checks made payable to “PVSD Foundation” into school with your student, or mail to 3 Iron Bridge Drive, Collegeville, PA 19426, to reserve a spot. You may also pay at the door the night of the event.

For the last five years, the PVSD Foundation has organized a Dodgeball Tournament that brings out hundreds of families to participate in an evening of spirited competition. This year’s tournament will be held on Saturday, March 3, from 12 to 4 p.m. Registration will open on Friday, Jan. 12 at https://perkiomen.revtrak.net/
Last year’s tournament brought in over $16,000 for the Foundation. We thank all those who supported this event, and for their flexibility with the date change that had to be made to accommodate basketball playoff games. To see pictures from last year’s event, please click here.
The Harlem Wizards brought their brand of comedic basketball back to the Valley on Nov. 17 and your attendance at this event helped the Foundation to raise over $9,000! Thank you for your participation.
