Founded in 2016, the Build a Spartan Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to empowering Mid Valley students and teachers.

Our Mission

We give students and teachers of Mid Valley School District the tools they need to excel in academics, arts, and athletics.

 

With the help of our alumni, partners, and friends, we fund innovative programs and scholarships that empower Mid Valley students and teachers to become scholars, leaders, and good citizens in our community.

We believe that to become well-rounded citizens of the world, all learners need exposure to excellent educational opportunities in academics, arts, and athletics.  

As such, all of our fundraising and grantmaking efforts center on these three pillars.

 

Our Vision

We are working to build a substantial endowment that will support the educational mission of the district for years to come.

 

We hope the Build A Spartan Foundation, founded in 2016, will become the go-to community organization where Mid Valley:

 

  • teachers, administrators, and students can fund innovative programs and projects in the district.

  • students can seek support for their education beyond the district.

  • alumni can give back to the district that built them.

  • parents, grandparents, and public education advocates can support the district that has shaped this community since 1969.
