MVLA Foundation Makes History: Reaches $10 Million Cumulative Gift to District Since 1982

$1.3 Million Grant Sets Record, Supports Excellence in 2013-14

What a difference a decimal point placement makes.

In 1982, when the MVLA High School Foundation was founded, the parent-organized group raised $13,000. This year, the Mountain View-Los Altos (MVLA) High School Foundation is giving the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District a $1.3 million grant, the largest grant in the 32-year history of the non-profit that raises money to fund academic programs. This represents a 40-fold increase in donations since its founding.


At the annual spring gifting dinner, held on April 30, MVLA Executive Director Laura Roberts and Board President Mike Maciag presented the authentic and symbolic check to Superintendent Barry Groves and Joe Mitchner, MVLA District school board president. School board trustees, MVLA High School Foundation board members and school district principals and associate superintendents were also in attendance.

What People Say About the Foundation

"With the foundation's investment in lower class sizes for freshman students, the transition from middle to high school is much smoother... As a result of our foundation's investment in our counselors and College and Career Centers, more of our students are gaining admission into their first choice colleges."    
- Dr. Barry Groves, MVLA Superintendent

"The Foundation has allowed all three high schools to maintain the best possible learning environment for all of our students... We would not be the schools that we are today without the support of the MVLA Foundation."     - Wynne Satterwhite, LAHS Principal
