November 10, 2015 (TEMECULA, CA) – The Temecula Education Foundation (TEF), the only 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation supporting almost 30,000 students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD), held a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on November 3, on the campus of Sparkman Alternative Education Center in Temecula. Formerly known as the Temecula Valley Foundation for Excellence in Education, TEF, in conjunction with the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce, officially launched its new name and logo, which were introduced earlier this year. The ceremony also celebrated the mission of the foundation, which is to “enhance and improve educational opportunities for students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District” (TVUSD). TEF is best known for its six-year sponsorship of summer enrichment classes for high school students and its five-year funding of curriculum support grants for TVUSD teachers. With this year’s grants for enrichment in the visual arts, performing arts, and sciences, since 2011, total TEF donations supporting students in Grades K-12 now exceed $100,000. The foundation is also known for sponsoring the Taste of Temecula Valley (TOTV), which was expanded in 2015 to a two-day community event. The next TOTV is April 29-30, 2016, in Old Town Temecula.
