Ways to Give

As the Ross Valley School District’s main fundraising organization, YES is committed to raising the additional funding necessary to protect the quality educational programs more than 1,700 Ross Valley students receive.

 

YES is made up of parents, businesses, and community members like you who give generously to provide arts education to all the children in RVSD’s five public schools.

 

These enrichment programs keep kids engaged, confident and actually improve their school attendance. There are many ways for you to help RVSD schools provide these vital programs. Excellent schools need everyone’s support, and more than 1,700 Ross Valley School District students will thank you!
