Here is how your donations help Mountain View residents and our Mountain View Community...

Your tax-deductible donations to the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation will go towards the following programs:

  1. Leadership Mountain View:
    • Sponsor a student going through this highly sought after and often copied Leadership education program.  We are committed to Helping Good People Become Great Leaders.  If you want to support and grow the leaders of tomorrow, this is a great place to contribution and will have a significant impact on a student's leadership journey and our community will be better for it 

    • Sponsor one the Leadership Mountain View program days: you as an individual or your company can sponsor a program day which will reduce the overall cost of the program and help us to bring more people through the program.  You will be recognized in the program day materials and on our website

  2. Scholarship Mountain View (high school seniors and junior college students)
    • Support higher level education for Mountain View residents 

The MVCOC Education Foundation provides several Scholarship Mountain View awards each year, ranging from $1,500 to $2,500, to encourage, recognize and assist Mountain View residents who are high school seniors or junior college students transferring to a four-year university or pursuing a career program. 

We have a bold goal for 2017 to raise $75,000 before March 15, 2017 in scholarship funds that can be awarded to 30 Mountain View resident high school and junior college students.  We greatly appreciate your generous donations towards this goal.  

To better align the scholarships with the needs of the community, we have broadened the scope to include students who are focusing their academic disciplines on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design and Math (STEAM)
