OTHER INFORMATION:

  • WVSF cannot provide funding for salaries (including substitute teachers).

  • Field Trips: WVSF may fund West Valley School District (WVSD) approved field trips. Field trip grant applications must include an approved WVSD Field Trip form.

  • Our fundraising efforts are continuous. While funds may not be available when your initial request is received, through our fundraising efforts, full or partial funding may be possible at a later time. It is essential that you give us the start date of your program, event or project with as much lead-time as possible.

  • WVSF will notify all grant applicants regarding the results of their application. If funds are approved, WVSF will also notify the WVSD Central Administration financial office. Grant funds are disbursed through the WVSD Central Administration financial office.  ​
