MVLA Foundation Makes History: Reaches $10 Million Cumulative Gift to District Since 1982
$1.3 Million Grant Sets Record, Supports Excellence in 2013-14
What a difference a decimal point placement makes.
In 1982, when the MVLA High School Foundation was founded, the parent-organized group raised $13,000. This year, the Mountain View-Los Altos (MVLA) High School Foundation is giving the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District a $1.3 million grant, the largest grant in the 32-year history of the non-profit that raises money to fund academic programs. This represents a 40-fold increase in donations since its founding.
At the annual spring gifting dinner, held on April 30, MVLA Executive Director Laura Roberts and Board President Mike Maciag presented the authentic and symbolic check to Superintendent Barry Groves and Joe Mitchner, MVLA District school board president. School board trustees, MVLA High School Foundation board members and school district principals and associate superintendents were also in attendance.
