Who We Are

The LVEF Mission:

“Champion exceptional educational opportunities for all LVJUSD students through the generosity of our community.”


The Livermore Valley Education Foundation was born in 1991 during a severe budget crisis in California. Concerned community members collaborated to form a supportive foundation whose mission was to ease the impact of funding cuts on the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD)

Since its inception, LVEF has substantially increased its overall support to LVJUSD programs involving the community’s children, teens, and teachers. In the last seven years alone, our organization is proud to have awarded over $4 million through direct donations made to LJVUSD, school block grants, Rotary matching grants, scholarships, teachers awards, and more.

LVEF is run by a local, all-volunteer board of directors dedicated to addressing contemporary funding challenges in Livermore public education. LVEF board members care deeply about finding solutions to the challenges facing our school district. LVEF strives to provide a central community resource dedicated to sustaining excellence in education for all students across Livermore.

LVEF Values:
Empowerment – We focus resources where they will have the greatest impact.

Transparency – We manage the funds entrusted to us with integrity.

Innovation – We value creative approaches to learning.

Partnerships – We build community through collaboration.
