We are looking for 500 people and businesses to partner with us in raising One Million Dollars during the next two years.  Those giving $2,000 during that time will have their names engraved on a permanent, prominent plaque as members of the Million Dollar Club.  Just add the words, Million Dollar Club” in the Comments line when donating to any program sponsored by the Foundation under “Donate Now.”



Recently, the PVHS Foundation sponsored a spectacular Decades concert in the Center for the Arts.  The popular music group has garnered fame throughout California.  They brought their show to PV to help with the annual Foundation Grant program.  Combining the shows profits with the generous givers of the Annie B’s campaign, we were able to grant 11 requests by PV staff for classroom, school-wide equipment and supplies not otherwise funded.

  • Tech equipment to allow projection from student IPads to screen for all to interact

President Dodds' Greeting Letter

Greetings Fellow Viking Supporters!

It is with great honor that I assume my new position as President of the Pleasant Valley High School Foundation. I look forward to continuing the standard of leadership and stewardship set by Dan Beadle during his tenure as President. In fact, both Dan and Linda have been gracious servants to the Viking community for decades. Their spirit of selflessness is second-to-none! It is humbling to be in such company.

As we move forward into this new season, I think it is important to reflect on the role of the Foundation. The Pleasant Valley High School Foundation funds programs that allow PV students to achieve excellence in their academic, creative and social development. We fund grants that provide innovative programs designed to enrich Pleasant Valley’s curriculum. Simply stated, we are here to help the Viking community. We raise money in order to give it away so that the student-experience at P.V. promotes life skills and helps build lifetime memories.

To that end, I should share one of my favorite quotes by one of the history’s great leaders, Winston Churchill. “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” For many of us, giving may not come naturally. Our greatest resource as individuals is time. If you have a servant’s heart, we are looking for you. We are looking for you to give your time in order to strengthen the Viking Community. If your time is in short supply, as is often the case, please consider opening your check book to help enrich a community which has provided such a solid foundation for so many of us.

I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my passion for Pleasant Valley High School.
