Established in 1996, the River Valley Education Foundation, Inc., (RVEF) is a charitable non-profit organization. Its purpose is to support the activities of students, teachers, administration and the community of the River Valley Local School District.
As a 501(c)3 charity under the direction of a board of volunteer trustees, the RVEF:
- Accepts and manages financial gifts for the Foundation's academic, music, athletic and general endowment funds;
- Serves as a channel for donors to make financial and in-kind donations to the District's clubs, teams and organizations. The Foundation makes mandatory filings and performs other administrative functions required of registered charities. This allows these groups to accept gifts made through the Foundation without the expense and effort of becoming stand-alone charities.
- Provides a framework for individuals, families, businesses, and other groups to establish memorial or special-purpose scholarship funds. To help ensure wishes are honored, Foundation trustees work with the originating parties to set guidelines for investment and administration.
Gifts to the RVEF may be tax-deductible. Neither the River Valley Education Foundation, nor the River Valley Local School District, offers tax advice.Prospective donors are encouraged to discuss the tax treatment of charitable gifts with a qualified tax professional.
Established in 1962, the River Valley Local School District serves more than 2,000 students in grades K through 12 in Ohio's Marion and Morrow Counties. The district received a rating of "Excellent" on its 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 report cards from the Ohio Department of Education.
