The Vacaville Public Education Foundation Endowment was started by original VPEF Board Members in the late 2000's. The goal of this endowed fund is to collect donations and put them in an interest bearing investment account. This account will grow over time and eventually the hope is it would get large enough that the interest from the account could be used to support Vacaville public education in perpetuity. The board has set the goal of $2,500,000 in endowed principal. At which point the interest collected annually would exceed $100,000 and we could give to Vacaville Schools that same amount annually forever.

The account started with several donations totaling just over $80,000. The board chose to put 10% of their annual fundraising into this account and subsequently grew it to a little over $120,000 by 2010. Long time teacher and board member Ernest Kimme passed away on August 12, 2015. When he passed away he left a sizeable donation including several hundred thousand dollars in cash, real estate and stock options. Today the account is valued just over $550,000. With real estate and all assets values included we estimate the account to be worth just over $1,500,000.

We are a little over half way to our goal. Are you doing estate planning or would you like to leave a sizeable gift that will support public education forever in Vacaville? If so, you can donate to the endowment, it is tax deductible and we even have local Estate Attorney's who will help you set this up for free.

Leave the legacy of public education in Vacaville forever and contact us about donating to the endowment today.
