Building Community Through Education
Over the past nine years, board members, volunteers and supporters have donated a sizable amount of funds to begin a long-term commitment to public education in the Vacaville. The Endowment Fund is a permanent investment designed to protect the principal donation. This principal donation will never be touched but the interest on that principal will be pulled off every year and donated to teachers and students. Over time, the fund will grow and with that the interest income will also grow into a significant annual income that can be used to augment the annual support from donors. To date we have just over $1,000,000 in principal invested. It is our hope and goal to grow the total fund to $2,500,000 at which point we will produce over $100,000 annually to give back to Vacaville public schools.

Supporting Our Local
Teachers and Staff
The Safe Schools Project, under the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) in partnership with the Young Professionals of Vacaville (YPV), aims to support safe school and classroom environments within Vacaville public schools. Through community outreach and fundraising, proceeds under The Safe Schools Project will support Vacaville public schools through the Covid-19 pandemic and help address other student wellness issues in our community. The Safe Schools Project offers tangible, positive assistance directly to educators, schools, and individual students. VPEF will make relief contributions based on rolling necessities throughout the school year. Virtual learning necessities may include: electronics, internet access, training, and online program subscriptions. Additional support may include: personal protective equipment, disinfection, or other assistance deemed necessary for an effective learning and teaching environment for all. Through unpredictable times, VPEF and YPV stands in support of our Vacaville teachers and students during this very difficult time.
