What Is Kiddo!?

Kiddo!, the Mill Valley Schools Community Foundation, is a non-profit 501(c3) organization made up of parents, teachers, businesses, and active members of the community who, since 1982, have raised tens of millions of dollars to supplement our limited school budgets. We fund vital programs and teachers’ salaries at our five elementary schools and middle school - including art, music, drama, poetry, dance, and teacher grants.

Our Vision, Mission & Purpose


Our children are a community treasure.  Our vision is to inspire children to reach their full potential by funding arts education and other vital programs.


Kiddo! supports quality educational programs in the arts and other areas for all children in partnership with the Mill Valley School District.  As concerned citizens, committed parents and advocates for educational excellence, we raise funds, gather resources and act as a catalyst to involve the community in supporting public education.  We celebrate the importance, value and achievement of our students, teachers and schools.


Kiddo!’s core purpose is to provide funding for comprehensive arts programs in vocal and instrumental music, visual art, dance, drama and poetry for children in the Mill Valley School District.  In collaboration with the school district, Kiddo! also supports other vital programs that benefit the needs of all students. Kiddo! serves as the Mill Valley School District’s primary nonprofit fundraising organization, is accountable to donors, and adheres to the core values of equity, responsibility and quality as the guiding criteria for all recommendations, decisions and policies.
