What Is The Deer Valley Education Foundation?
The Deer Valley Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was formed in 1986 as one of the first education foundations in the State of Arizona. The Foundation raises funds to provide grants for student scholarships and teacher grants to bring innovative and dynamic learning experiences to our children.
Our Mission: To foster excellence in education by funding programs that enhance the capabilities of Deer Valley’s schools to stimulate students’ academic achievement and enrich the learning environment.
