The Home Stretch We need YOUR HELP TODAY to keep YOUR child's technology education! ONLY $8,425 to go!
We need $95,000 to pay the salaries and supplies for your MVES Computer & Science Lab instructors. MVES does not pay for these services and supplies, ONLY your donations make this possible
. Thanks to you, we've raised $86,575 this year, but we still need your help for the remaining $8,425
to ensure these labs are funded to educate your child next year.If each family only donated $25, we can make up the difference!
The Foundation is so important because 100% of all donations pay
for your child's Computer & Science Lab instructors. These specialists allow a lower number of students in ALL specials classes and MVES is now working toward STEM certification, ALL THANKS to our Foundation funded Teachers!
Without your donations, there would be NO SCIENCE OR COMPUTER INSTRUCTION! No STEM
certification to work toward, LARGER SPECIALS
