Valley, is dependent upon the financial commitment of its alumni. While
large, individual gifts are often given the most press, it is the annual

The Putnam Valley Education
Foundation (PVEF) was established in 2003 by a group of community volunteers
who hoped to augment the educational opportunities in the Putnam Valley
Central School District.
Each year the funds raised
by the PVEF are used for educationally sound programs and projects that
cannot be funded by the district budget. Each spring, school administrators,
teachers, and parents or students with the support of their building administrator,
are encouraged to submit grant applications. The Foundation’s Grant
Committee reviews these applications and determines how best to allocate
funds based upon each applications overall value to the district.
