Investing in the education of the children who attend RVSD schools benefits us all.


We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of our amazing donors. Simply put, if it wasn’t for our faithful supporters, our children would not have sustained exposure to the arts and YES wouldn’t exist. YES thanks you for supplying the funds that we need to make a difference in the educational experience of over 2,200 students.

Special Thank You to Parties with Purpose Hosts (& Key Volunteers)

Parties with Purpose are a collection of kid, family and adult parties hosted by RVSD families or supporters for the benefit of YES. They build community while raising money at the same time. 100% of ticket sales go to support YES.


Hosts who are district parents donate time and resources to throw a party in addition to donating to support our Annual Family Giving Fund. Thank you to all hosts!
