Dime a Day dime
Our Annual Giving Campaign
The Dime a Day campaign is the Foundation’s annual giving campaign. We know, during this difficult time in our economy, that every gift is a sacrifice. So when structuring our annual giving program, we were deliberate to create options that could fit every budget — that could allow every family to participate at the level that worked best for them.

There are 180 days in the school year. We ask that each student consider donating one dime per day.

  1. A dime a day is $18.
  2. A quarter a day is $45.
  3. A dollar a day is $180.

There are about 720 students at the school. If every student donated one dime for every day of school we could raise $12,960 for Valley. That’s a lot of computers or iPads for our students and our teachers. But for each one of us, it’s just a dime a day. It’s amazing what a dime can do!

Make a difference with your dimes! During the 2017-18 school year we had 132 families donate a total of $6,735. This year, we are working toward 100 percent participation. Our goal is for every student to donate one dime for each day of school. This will raise $12,960 for Valley! Click on the Donate button and have your name added to the list.

Cinco de Mayo Trail Run
Our Signature Fundraising Event

Trail RunThe Cinco de Mayo Trail Run is the Foundation’s signature fundraiser. At the inaugural event, in 2007, there were 330 runners and we raised $12,000. The year 2013 was our breakthrough year. For the first time ever we broke — actually smashed through the 1,000 participant barrier. Our final registration total was 1,223 and the event made $25,000 for Valley Elementary! Since its inception, the popular event has raised an astounding $238,053.

Our 13th Annual Cinco de Mayo Trail Run will be held on May 4, 2019, at Lake Poway. It promises to be bigger and better than ever before and we hope you’ll join us for this major milestone in the event’s history!
