About the Valpo Schools Foundation


Working to enhance excellence in education and encourage innovation within Valparaiso Community Schools

In the past 7 years alone, we have provided more than $289,923 in support for Valpo students and teachers! Please help us continue this legacy by making a donation today!

The Valpo Schools Foundation was formed to help young people in Valparaiso Community Schools meet some of their educational and personal goals. We provide student scholarships for graduating seniors and classroom grants for innovative teaching ideas in the classroom. We partner with Valparaiso High School in recognizing students maintaining a 3.5 GPA for the school year with an academic letter. And we introduce our eighth graders to academic opportunities after high school by providing campus and classroom tours of Ivy Tech Community College and Valparaiso University.

The Public Education Foundation of Valparaiso, Indiana, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) corporation, dba Valpo Schools Foundation, formed to: secure funding, gifts, and bequests to support, promote, and advance educational opportunities for students of Valparaiso Community Schools; grant scholarships to help graduates of Valparaiso High School attain their higher education goals; and provide funds for the development and implementation of academic classroom projects.
