There are many ways to help Mill Valley schools provide outstanding teachers and programs like art, music, drama, poetry, dance, P.E. and instructional classroom and library aides.
Each spring at Kiddo! we launch our Annual Campaign to raise funds for the upcoming school year. We ask families to contribute $1,350 per student, and we aim for 100% parent participation at any donation level. Please give as generously as you can! This link will take you straight to our online donation page.
Are you a business owner with kids in the district? If so, there is a new option for your Kiddo! giving. Like the Community Business category, recognition and visibility is given to parent businesses through a variety of platforms throughout the year, and your donation counts toward the Annual Campaign. It's the best of both worlds.
Quality education is everyone’s business! Each year, more than 250 local businesses sign on as Kiddo! Business Partners. Recognition is given to participating businesses on our website, eNews, at school sites and are included in the Business Partner Directory. Please support the businesses that support our schools!
Gifts of stock are always welcome, and the benefits of giving appreciated securities are significant. By donating stock rather than selling it, you can avoid potential capital gains taxes. Shares can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the Kiddo! (Mill Valley Schools Community Foundation) account. Please consult with your tax adviser to determine your tax savings.

Add education to your shopping list! We have many shopping programs that provide significant funding for Kiddo!, including eScrip, Mill Valley Market's Shop & Give Program, www.igive.com and more. In addition, the Fuel 24:7 gas station on Miller Avenue and the Chevron on East Blithedale donate a penny for every gallon pumped throughout the year. Gas up and give!
The Kiddo! Endowment for the Arts is an ongoing fund created to establish a legacy for future generations. Established in 1986, the fund is currently valued at approximately $6 million, and yearly proceeds are used to fund ongoing programs and seed promising new initiatives.
The Dee Kauer Memorial Fund was established in honor of MVSD librarian Dee Kauer, and helps raise funds to support the libraries in all six of the district's schools. Click here to make a donation to the Dee Kauer Memorial Fund through the Kiddo! Endowment for the Arts.
