TEF Wants YOU – Be Part of a Great Team!

Dear Temecula Parents, Business Leaders, and Community Members:

I am pleased to announce the Temecula Education Foundation (TEF) is recruiting prospective Board Members to join our team.

Our mission is to enhance educational opportunities in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) by providing student enrichment programs and promoting community engagement. We do this by raising funds that allow TVUSD schools to cultivate innovation and creativity while supporting expansion of visual arts, performing arts, and science curriculum in the classroom.

Our signature event and annual fundraiser, the Taste of Temecula Valley, showcases restaurants, wineries, craft and microbreweries, specialty craft, and service vendors from across the Temecula Valley and southern California. Additionally, TEF has facilitated an accelerated summer high school program for the past ten years with support and accreditation from TVUSD. All proceeds from our fundraising efforts benefit the students of TVUSD in the form of grants, scholarships, and curriculum support in the areas of arts and sciences.

Board Members are selected for three-year, renewable terms and play an extremely important role in the success of our program. Board members develop TEF’s annual budget and funding priorities, select curriculum support grantees, work with TVUSD to maintain ongoing partnerships and explore new opportunities, and plan, organize, and execute the Taste of the Temecula Valley community-wide event. Board meetings are held monthly.

Serving on our Board is a great way to directly impact the quality of our local schools and expand the breadth of educational opportunities for our students. It’s extremely rewarding to see our efforts directly impact programs in such a meaningful and tangible way. If you cannot serve on our Board, we encourage you to consider volunteering at our events and programs, making a one-time or recurring donation, and/or selecting us as your Amazon Smile charitable organization at As with everything we do as an organization, it’s “For the Kids!”

If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail at You can also find more information about us at our website ( I look forward to hearing from you.
