On behalf of the Vail School District Foundation, we hope you had a wonderful holiday and New Year! We have been busy this school year awarding grants to benefit Vail students. In our first year, we have been able to award over $13,000 in grants to our schools. We would love to be able to continue this giving! Here are some examples of grants awarded this year!


Did your child benefit from the First Grade Literacy Centers at Acacia and Desert Willow that the Foundation helped fund?

Or the SunnyVail Transition Conference at Cienega?

Or the SWAT Peer Mediation at Empire High School?


Please consider making a gift to the Vail School District Foundation.


A donation as small as $10 has a huge impact on Vail students. And your donation is tax-deductible. Together we can do great things!

Go to to donate

Click on the VUSD Families Give Back Tab

We would like to offer several prizes for those who donate:

  • A $10 donation enters your child(ren) for a chance to win a limo ride to McDonalds for dinner!
  • A $25 donation will enter you for a chance to win a $50 Fox Restaurants gift card, 2 tickets to a show and night at Starr Pass.
  • A $50 donation enters you for a chance to win a weekend stay at Jim Click’s cabin in the White Mountains.
  • And for the 4 schools that raise the most money, we will provide a staff lounge makeover with a new microwave and coffee maker.

Thank you for helping VSDF enhance learning opportunities for our students!
