PVHS Seniors need your help! 

Of the $120,000 in scholarship checks that the PVEF writes each year to over 100 graduates, $50,000 is provided by the Foundation’s annual fundraising.  Due to the COVID-19 cancellation of the Run with Carl and annual golf outing, the Foundation’s ability to award the full complement of scholarships to the class of 2021 requires that $50,000 be raised by December 31, 2020.

We are tremendously grateful to announce that Dr. Eric Dippel (PVHS class of 1985) and family have pledged to match every donation up to a total of $25,000 as a gift from his family.  

We are asking that you support our “Thank-a-Senior” campaign. With your help, 110 PVHS seniors will be encouraged to continue their post-secondary education at a university, college or vocational school of their choosing.

Thank you for your consideration and for your continued support of our students. 


Building A Foundation

Thanks to generous donors from across the country, the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation works to build a foundation for our students to grow and achieve their dreams. Our scholarship program helps students to pursue post-secondary educational opportunities. New research shows less than 5% of Quad City students who do not start a post-secondary program immediately after high school will not complete a program, whether it’s a four-year degree or a vocational program. The Foundation scholarships give students an incentive to continue their educations and, in turn, build our community.

Watch to see how the PVEF has helped students over the last 25 years.
