About Us

Viejo Elementary School Foundation (VESF)

The Viejo Elementary School Foundation is dedicated to improving the educational experience for all students that attend Viejo Elementary School in Mission Viejo, California.  We work closely with the teachers and administration, as well as the PTA and parents of the incredible students that attend Viejo Elementary.  Our mission is to strengthen our learning community by providing financial support to school programs that promote students’ educational success.   We accomplish this task by accepting charitable donations, writing grants, hosting fund raising events, and operating sales booths in front of the school.

VESF welcomes involvement from parents of current and former students of Viejo Elementary as well as local community leaders and business owners.  Events hosted by VESF will always have sponsorship opportunities to allow local business owners to engage and participate in supporting the students of Viejo Elementary.  We encourage you to signup for our mailing list and follow the school’s activities on Facebook so we can keep you informed about our latest activities.

Thank you,

Viejo Elementary School Foundation
